The Internet is changing

Turn and face the strain ... ch-ch-changes

I read this back shortly after it went up after NANOG 47, and I came across the URL again the other day. It's a fascinating look at the shift in the Internet behavior over the past couple of years. Two of the big shifts are the transition from money coming from connectivity to money coming from content (inc advertising), and the huge spike in cable internet due to things like the comcast "triple play" deal

A few things that stuck with me about it:
In 2007, thousands of ASNs contributed 50% of content.
In 2009, 150 ASNs contribute 50% of all Internet traffic.

In 2009, Comcast is now a net contributor of Internet traffic.
