	How about mapping BGP info to Per Capita Income. I imagine you might
see a better correlation there.

one of caida's elves (brad) did a cool
visualization of demographic measures of 
Internet resources, stratified by continent with
substratification by country (with help of
CIA factbook, RouteViews, and NetGeo).

    http://www.caida.org/analysis/geopolitical/bgp2country/

    measures: geographic area, human population, GDP, phones-in-use,
    ASes, ISPs, prefixes, addresses....


nothing overwhelmingly surprising here 
but compelling nonetheless 
(yes, it turns out data can be both)
