The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike 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. Charges and springs
The Role of the Cloud ArchitectRight! And with the movement towards cloud different public cloud providers have different offerings. For example, the product I lead at ATT is called Cloud Architect, and we also offer bare metal computing without a hypervisor. Amazon's public cloud, for example, is built on Xen. So it looks almost like a workload provisioning method, to where now you have an application or you have a large environment and you have to choose. Do you want to go to a public cloud, or is a private cloud just the right thing for you?
15 Web Alternatives to Popular Desktop SoftwareWeb applications for business have come a long way. They used to be poor imitations of their desktop counterparts, with only one or two functions and not at all practical. But my, have these apps grown.Visual Map Of The Internet And Websites' ConnectednessThis is actually a worthwhile little time waster. Internet-map.net is a website that depicts websites as different sized circles based on the size of their audience, and their relatedness to one another based on their proximity on the map. It has a handy search feature too, so you don't have to go scrolling around to find the site you're looking for.

Building A New Map And I Need Your Help: What Are The Key Categories of Data In Today's Network Economy?Many of you probably remember the “Points of Control” Web 2 Summit Map from last year, it was very well received. Hundreds of thousands of folks came to check it out, and the average engagement time was north of six minutes per visitor. It was a really fun way to make the conference theme come to life, and given the work that went into its creation, we thought it’d be a shame to retire it simply because Web 2 has moved on to a new theme. As I posted last week, this year’s theme is “The Data Frame.” From my updated verbiage describing the theme: For 2011, our theme is “The Data Frame” - focusing on the impact of data in today’s networked economy.
Equation Group: Meet the NSA 'gods of cyber espionage'Over the last couple of years we have been hearing about ever more sophisticated pieces of malware. From Stuxnet and Flame to Gauss and most recently Regin, all have shown increasing levels of technical prowess and all have been linked in some way with the US government. These were thought to be the pinnacle of a huge investment in offensive cyber capabilities by the world's wealthiest country. That was, until we learned about Equation. Described by Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based security company which uncovered it, as "an almost omnipotent cyberespionage organisation", the group has been called the "God of cyberespionage" and may have been operating undetected for almost two decades. While Kaspersky's report reveals much about the group, it barely touches the surface of the capabilities of what is likely the most highly-prized jewel in the NSA's cyberespionage crown.

What I find particularly exciting about it is that the output looks like something out of the pages of Masamune Shirow’s “Ghost in the Shell” flying through the virtual noosphere. Whilst the utility of such visualisations are still questionable it’s always good to see innovation in this area and makes my own attempts look tame in comparison! “Noosphere (aka metaconsciousness): Human communication and interaction may eventually advance to the stage where even conscious thought may be globalized and massively shared.
InteractiveThe World of Seven Billion The map shows population density; the brightest points are the highest densities. Each country is colored according to its average annual gross national income per capita, using categories established by the World Bank (see key below).Web 2 Map: The Data Layer – Visualizing the Big Players in the Internet EconomyAs I wrote last month, I’m working with a team of folks to redesign the Web 2 Points of Control map along the lines of this year’s theme: “The Data Frame.” In the past few weeks I’ve been talking to scores of interesting people, including CEOs of data-driven start ups (TrialPay and Corda, for example), academics in the public dataspace, policy folks, and VCs. Along the way I’ve solidified my thinking about how best to visualize the “data layer” we’ll be adding to the map, and I wanted to bounce it off all of you. So here, in my best narrative voice, is what I’m thinking. First, of course, some data. On the left hand side are eight major players in the Internet Economy, along with two categories of players who are critical, but who I’ve lumped together – payment players such as Visa, Amex, and Mastercard, and carriers or ISP players such as Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon.
