FAO: people who like infographics
Still beating the University of Sunderland quite handily I see. But jesus fucking christ, what is that DiS orbiting? I can't...every magnitude fills the screen with teal. What's sufficiently faggy and new media and DiS-y to be close to it but so much bigger?
Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike on real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.
