Interesting blog post. Fun read - but take about half of the sites mentioned with a grain of salt.

If your wardrobe includes a shiny tin-foil hat, then you will love these free Internet tools. Whether you want to protect yourself from Internet snoopers, want to spy on those out to get you, or want to be able to track trends that you know will lead to something big, then these tools will help you get the job done.
I was surprised the list didn't have http://internettrafficreport.com/
which is one of the more interesting traffic monitoring sites. Like the Weather Channel - except it's for the Internet backbone. Great place to look when you suspect something really big
is going down. Take a look here next time your tracert query stalls at one of the major routers. Very cool site.
