    I briefly linked to this visual version, linked from the text, in the description, but on a second look, I think the fact that the squares being different scales makes it hard to do the visual comparison between e.g. a roundtrip in a datacenter vs. a roundtrip from CA to the Netherlands, and it ends up being kind of visually misleading.

      An interactive version of the visual seems to be here (previously on lobste.rs).
