The Internet

This is just for internet geeks. Here is a really cool map of the way that IP addresses are distributed both numerically and geographically. I'll admit I like maps, and just like all good maps, you can stare at this one anytime and learn something new about something. In this case, among other things, you will be reminded that the US has a lot of control of the internet, or at least we did in the beginning. A small handful of major US high-tech firms have more addressing capability the the entire third world combined.

I guess things are OK for now. That is, until I can't get an IP address for my toaster.
