I got one of the best speaker’s gifts ever given by a conference thanks to Bess Sadler Of UCSD Stanford. She got RENCI’s Jeff Heard to do this very cool & beautiful visualization of ibiblio virtual host traffic. The X, Y and Z axises of these globes are the top 3 octets of the IP numbers of the sites accessing the various ibiblio-hosted sites. Don’t worry so much about the analysis tho; it’s a beautiful work of art. Thanks Jeff and Bess.

Groklaw's world

Here’s one globe representing the Groklaw World. More globes and a better explanation at Jeff’s RENCI Visualization blog.
