"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


This is the internet. Not a live picture obviously. Nor does it have live traffic updates. But its one of the first visual images of what our connected internetted global community looks like.

There may still be work to be done, since you cannot possibly spot the exact location of the whereabouts of this blog*s exact location at the moment. But technology evolves and soon you can say "OMG that*s my blog there! Damn I left the lights on in the kitchen again!"

Oh and here is the color chart for the above map:
Asia Pacific - Red
Europe/Middle East/Central Asia/Africa - Green
North America - Blue
Latin American and Caribbean - Yellow
RFC1918 IP Addresses - Cyan
Unknown - White

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
