This psychedelic data viz shows the wild evolution of the internet

Barrot Lyon's Opte Project has a new visualization that uses network data to show how the internet has radically transformed since 1997.

Anyone familiar with the phrase "dial-up" can tell you the internet has come a long way since the 90s, when "the web" was a place you could only visit with one very large (probably grey) box.


But what if you could actually see the internet's unfettered growth instead of just guessing.
