Very nice. But:


ZA has the 3rd highest prefix count at 2700. Why does South Africa have such a high prefix count?

2) 4th place is "??". Can you eloborate on that line?


one of caida's elves (brad) did a cool
visualization of demographic measures of
Internet resources, stratified by continent with
substratification by country (with help of
CIA factbook, RouteViews, and NetGeo).

    measures: geographic area, human population, GDP, phones-in-use,
    ASes, ISPs, prefixes, addresses....
