Bitcoin Nodes WebGL Globe

Stefan Thomas, the Bitcoin user behind WeUseCoins.com, has developed a really neat web application for WebGL compatible browsers in preparation for his talk at KPMG Zurich. What this means is you'll need Firefox 4 or one of the later versions of Google Chrome. What the globe represents in detail are Bitcoin broadcast nodes by city, the height and color of bars denote the amount of nodes there.


Credits go to Mike Hearn (of Google) for the idea, dump.bitcoin.it for the data, the Google Globe Experiment, and Planet Pixel Emporium for the Earth's texture.
