The growing Internet in one Slide

Filed under: Maps,Short observations — Shane Greenstein @ 3:21 pm

Here is a challenge: visually represent the world wide growth of the Internet in the last decade in only one picture.  From my friend Robert Cannon, comes this recommendation, and I agree. This composite picture from the online publication, the New Scientist, does it as well as any I have seen.  The US and Europe and Japan started the decade with the largest number of users, and, hence, generated the most traffic. Now China and India and Brazil are growing into users/generators of equal magnitude. If you want the longer version of the same lesson, take a look at the slide show. Pretty cool.
