Here is his announce!
Hi All,

I have been working on a visualisation of latency on a network. I found an interesting dataset with latency information of 140 cities around the world.
In the visualisation I show different metrics regarding latency such as from each city which other has the best/worst latency; cities that geographically are close but have high latency; far cities that have low latency; and average latency for each city.
When visualising the worst latency for each city I found that, for this network (at least), Valencia and in a minor extent Nairobi represent the worst endpoint for connections (in terms of latency). Also in the visualisation of far cities with low latency, Newmarket in Canada and Toledo in Spain concentrate the best endpoint for connections coming from Europe and North-America respectively.
Here there is a screencast:
If you want to load the code:

        package: ‘ConfigurationOfNetworkLatency’;
        load.
(ConfigurationOfNetworkLatency project version: ‘0.1’) load.

I would be glad to have your comments and suggestions.
