I decided to traceroute three of the sites I access the most, from the places I’m at the most. From both at home in Brooklyn, and from ITP, I tracked facebook, an rpg site I’m a part of, and my itp blog. To get approximate locations, I used http://geoipinfo.org/ and plotted the locations using https://mapmakerapp.com/ The maps can be found at: https://mapmakerapp.com/?map=5bb2a9167cdb25133544426d5659
The majority of the hops from itp were the same within New York. A few odd exceptions were:
the hop from facebook in CA to to facebook in NYC
the hop from NYU, to Amsterdam, to Los Angeles
in that same traceroute, it hopped from LA, to CO, to Hong Kong, and then to Palo Alto.
The hops in the traceroute from home were more what I expected, starting on the east coast, hitting middle America, and ending on the west coast.
