What are the size and color scales representing?

Few comments and corrections
1. The Internet map comes from new data on the structure of the Internet, available at www.netdimes.org. Everybody are encouraged to visit our website and contribute some measurements to make the maps more accurate. The picture was generated with the Lanet-vi program of I. Alvarez-Hamelin et al. http://xavier.informatics.indiana.edu/lanet-vi.
2. The color code is the k-index of a node, which is the number of links a node has to other nodes in the center of the network. The size of a node is proportional to the total number of connections it has.
3. Data is transferred between nodes of the Internet, and not websites.
4. The authors of the paper are physicists and engineers at Bar-Ilan, Tel-Aviv and the Hebrew Universities in Israel.

"internet" and "web" are *not* synonymous- the Web is one of many services that run across the internet.

can someone explain the scale? The numbers mean absolutely nothing. At least from a quality point of view or QOS. http://www.templatestaff.com

useless image!

Trik

The image is pretty, yet completely useless since you didn't label a damn thing. Like Axes, or even scale. Nice job nutjob.

opie wan kenobi

OMG, ITS A GIANT FLOATING ANTBALL

Jaxxed

Actually the image is not useless, as it is a graph which doesn't need axes (neighbours are what are important).

Read the comments for interpretation of the numbers

Sounds like we need a ringroad / bypass / expressway.

I liked xkcd's map more.

The internet is a moving target no matter how simple you try to make it diagramatically it is always changing.
Hisenberg's uncertainty principle states that you can know the location or speed of an atomic particle not both.

how many "clicks" does it take to get to the center of the internet ?

mikeyintheoc

Hey I thought I was the center of the universe and everything evolved around me including this mess!.

mikeyintheoc

I meant "revolves"

i like blogs so much because Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art art blog, photographs photo blog, sketch blog, videos blog, music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) and are part of a wider network of social media. Micro-blogging is another type of blogging which consists of blogs with very short posts.
