Well, yeah, but Jon, given that the Internet is heterogeneous,
anisotropic, expanding, and mutating, it is really hard to be

of isotropism, how do we know what things look like "over there"?))
will quickly grow stale.

or localized (in space and time) measurements can be obtained with
an affordable amount of effort?
