David, you may also want to try to correlate the addition of
participants to the peering fabric to bandwidth growth.  I know TorIX
shows on their main page the date when new participants joined the
exchange.

http://www.torix.net/

For example, Microsoft jointed on 9/3/10.  You may be able to see a rise
in usage shortly after.

Thanks
Sameer
