Nice pice of interactive-J -- on both ends

PC Magazine has produced a nice piece of interactive journalism, using cyber crowdsourcing to then produce clickable regional maps showing how abysmal "high speed" Internet service really is in this country.

For the crowdsourcing part, PC Mag asked people to download and run its SurfSpeed app. It then compiled the information into the regional breakouts. (SurfSpeed is not a bandwidth meter but instead tries to mimic real-world surfing behavior.)

One of the conclusions: Cable generally is better than DSL - faster and with more satisfied customers.
