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).
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)
things are not what they seem to be,
nor are they otherwise.
