internet census – 2012


“To test if we could see a day night rhythm in the utilization of IP spaces we used all ICMP records to generate a series of images that show the difference from daily average utilization per half an hour. We composed theses images to a GIF animation that clearly shows a day night rhythm. The difference between day and night is lower for US and Central Europe because of the higher number of “always on” Internet connections. Full resolution GIFs and single images are available for download here.

Using a #botnet last year some hacker folks mapped the largest and most comprehensive IPv4 census ever. More here

The extrapolated size “If you added those, it would make for a total of 1.3 Billion used IP addresses“…

New Haven house – Charles Moore

Back in the spring, Alexandra Lange made the case for Why Charles Moore (Still) Matters, in Metropolis Magazine.

She closes “For many years he worked with photographer Morley Baer, trucking in his own ornaments and bentwood chairs to get the mood just right. Photographs of the early MLTW interiors, the later fountains, faculty clubs, and academic buildings are shot through with diagonals. Up into the clerestory, down into a tower, through a cutout, across a crowded room. Moore’s interest in the layers of history manifested itself, through all his partnerships, in projects domestic and urban, in architecture to be experienced in movement—swinging between inside and out in a hammock, on two legs, or on wheels.

Malaputa is the ultimate free-trade zone, the final offshore platform, the last lawless frontier, haven for the wildest of wildcat bankers. Mr. Mellon has anointed himself King of Malaputa. It also may be said that Mellon is Malaputa.
