The Map of the Internet is a visual representation of all the networks around the world that are interconnected to form the Internet as we know it today. These include small and large Internet service providers (ISPs), Internet exchange points, university networks, and organization networks such as Facebook and Google.

Danish Designer Takes Infographics Off the Page

One shortcoming of even the best infographics is that data visualization is still just a clever way of looking at numbers. Danish designer Peter Ornoft has taken infographics off the page, photographing representations of data in real-world context, with a recent series of charts on hot-button topics.

Perhaps the most subversive anti-Western propaganda news network Al Jazeera has ever created. Sophisticated and sinister, it succeeds not because it unleashes a frontal assault, but because the nature of wealth inequality, debt and the costs of war are laid out in a cartoonish mockery of the status quo. Accompanied by the theme song from Tetris, this definitely looks like it would be a fun video game to play. Oh wait…
