Mapping the Internet

How cool is this? 

MIT’s Technology Review: Mapping the Internet.

According to a novel study mapping the structure of the
Internet, the increased use of peer-to-peer communications could "improve the
overall capacity of the Internet and make it run much more smoothly."

Bandwidth and throughput issues aside, what really makes the study interesting is the visualizations they did on what the internet looks like: Its a tangled web of hierarchical structures, based on the connections between individual nodes (such as
service providers).
