does anyone know how big the internet is? or how you could work it out?
I'm trying to pin down a figure (probably in terabytes)

hola marc,


nice link! :-)

also:
http://www.mappingcyberspace.com

have both books by dodge-kitchin. though the atlas is a very nice
edition 
(fullcolor, etc), the one i would recommend is 'mapping cyberspace', has

lots of info and facts.
the work of this two researchers-informationsystem-geographers is very 
interesting.


my little contribution:

http://netart.org.uy/browser-art/
(an article wrote in 2002 -with slight updates upto 2004- about
browser.art, 
also refers to representation of web-spatialization).
spanish only, sorry, but has lots of links in references' section for
those 
interested in this topic.


salud!
