No physical address
When we were putting this website together, we realized that most companies put their physical address in their about us or contact us pages.
We thought this was not necessary since we produce internet content, there is no need to have a physical location and, after all, the Internet is “everywhere”… So, instead of having an image with a map of our location… hmm, well, this prompted me to look up the “internet around the world”, “internet map” and came across this fascinating image created by an artist called Barrett Lyon on his web site The Opte Project, so, we used the image and its legend in our contact page.
THE INTERNET 2015
This is the first major release of the Internet map since 2010.
… while searching I also came across an animation that shows the 550,000 miles of cables under the oceans that power the internet.
According to this site, by 2017, there were 420 submarine cables in service that stretches over 700,000 miles (1.1 Million kilometers)
… also, Ruslan Enikeev, created another kind of internet map that shows websites as circles, the size of each circle is calculated based on the traffic of each site. The coolest feature of this map is that is zoomable. You can “travel” in or out in this space that shows hundreds of sites. You can also search for the site you wish to find by typing, for instance, www.siteName.com.
Currently, the map has over 350 thousand websites from 196 countries.
Enjoy and please visit Ruslan’s site and donate to his non-profit creation.
