Time-lapse of botnet's spread around the world

Marvel at the spread of a botnet around the world in this 44-second time-lapse covering five days' infection activity, as measured by observing new joins to a botmaster's IRC channel. It's really fascinating how geographical our Internet activity really is -- how a bot's jump to another region (seemingly) precipitates more local infections as (presumably) local users communicate with nearby systems.
