Video: Egypt's Departure From the Internet

We also put together a short video, again using a Hilbert curve visualization for Egypt's Internet address space. It illustrates the minute-by-minute departure of Egypt's service providers from the global routing table on Friday [Jan 27-28]. With each white flash, a new network has been withdrawn from the routing table, leaving a new set of Egyptian customers without Internet. The country fades nearly to black in less than 30 minutes.
