Update: 06/04/00 - I'll update this document with more specific commentary, source code, and a lengthy rant on the horrific state of the domain name system and whois service in the 21st century when I get a chance, but for now suffice it to say that I've run the two-letters again, this time including the digits 0-9 in addition to the alphabeticals, and capturing the registration date for each domain. Below is the 2-d namespace as an animated GIF, presented by year. There is also a version presented by month (831K).

0z   zz

A few notes:

the old, static versions (circa July 1998).

Other sites of interest to those intrigued by information mapping, particularly of the Internet and the domain namespace:
