The look of the Intertubes

Google's Operating System blog has produced a map of the Interweb, or the main parts of it at any rate, showing the main nodes, I suppose you could call them, and the lines joining them together. It's a beautiful picture. Here it is:

Like a field of dandelions. Lovely. But I have no idea what it thinks it's showing. It simply isn't possible for something so interlinked as even a small corner of the Web to be so linear in shape. Still, some bright spark at teh Goolge has something to be proud of, and to post up on the wall of his apartment.

By the way, if you're looking for Grapes 2.0 on the map, I'm not there. The picture must have been taken in daylight American-time, when my lights were out.

Probably best that way.
