It looks cool, but is actually kind of weird, not directly tracking connections
between any two computers, but tracking connections between Ouimet's server and
whatever other computers you're looking at. It's the easy way of doing it
without needing to install special software, but highly inaccurate and not very
useful for anything. It looks pretty, and the media doesn't understand how
technology like that works, hence the coverage.
Yeah, it is Ouimet. The article switches in the middle, but it is Ouimet.
been using a program for years called neotrace to do just this. I wouldn't
consider it very accurate for locating the physical location of an IP address.
It is nice to follow the hops through the network but traceroute will do this
also. Mad props for making it web based. It's in my bookmarks now.
I'm pretty sure his last name is Ouimet, pronounced We=met.
