“There’s an app for that.”

We’ve heard it many times, the spoken certainty that the necessities of the world are satisfied by an app.

We love cool apps as much as anyone, so FlowingData caught our attention again with this blog post: “App shows what the Internet looks like

“In a collaboration between PEER 1 Hosting, Steamclock Software, and Jeff Johnston, the Map of the Internet app provides a picture of what the physical Internet looks like. Users can view Internet service providers (ISPs), Internet exchange points, universities and other organizations through two view options — Globe and Network.
