Starting a new era

Today, we celebrate the Internet day. But I have a little concern, the flow of IP (Internet Protocol) data between locations is nearly ubiquitous. 
Globe Encounters visualizes in real time the volumes of Internet data flowing between New York and cities around the world.

The size of the glow on a particular city location corresponds to the amount of IP traffic flowing between that place and New York City. A greater glow implies a greater IP flow.
What do you think?
