Internet Weather Map

----- Begin NetScrap(TM) -----

Internet Weather Map
Displays the current internet traffic (and congestion) like a weather map. It's updated every 4 hours and works by timing PINGs to 5,000 hosts across the country. There's also an MPEG of the historical info so you can watch storms rise and fall. This site is run by John Quatrerman who some say wrote the first published book on the internet. He's also the co-author of The Design and Implementation of the 4.3BSD Unix Operating System.
