[Webinar] Surveying the Internet for 20 Years – The Domain Survey – Afternoon
2014 marks the twentieth anniversary of the ISC Domain Survey. Since 1994 we have been making quarterly surveys of Internet hosts and publishing a summary of the results. Our graph of Host Count over time appears in most introductory computer science textbooks around the world. We fully expect the January 2014 survey to list more than 2^30 hosts, a binary billion.
In this webinar, ISC’s Brian Reid will talk about the origins of the Survey, its methodologies, what the data does and doesn’t mean, and why there was a downward spike in January 2007.
