Mapping Developing Perspective

I was curious to see where Developing Perspective listeners were. So on that whim I dug around in my server logs for downloads and worked up a script to plot the IP addresses of the last 24 hours on a map. Some of this laid out how I would have expected. There are strong clusters of listeners in the US and Europe. The part that kinda blew my mind though were the outlying listeners in more diverse countries.

I remember the first time I sold an app in a country I’ve never visited (Singapore IIRC). At the time it felt incredibly cool that something I wrote in my basement could have been useful to someone I’d never meet in a country I may never go. It is hard to get a real sense of the how small the internet makes the world until you see it on a map.
