Portuguese project to count (and map) all Internet Users

An ambitious project called MapMyName, launched by two graduate students from Aveiro University in Portugal, aims to map and subsequently count all the Internet users in the world.

This is made possible, according to a video release in YouTube, due to a “recommendations system”. Every person who signs in, recommends 3 friends that also use the Internet.

The data is monitored via a Google Maps API, so we can actually see where each user is, on a world map.

The project estimates that it will take 30 days to map all the Internet users in the world.
