Er... geography != network topology.
So people keep telling me...
In reality, geography is a decent predictor of round trip time,
although the relationship isn't a simple linear one. (Ie, I can predict
that I'll have an RTT of around 250 ms to most Japanese destinations
and around 150 ms to most Californian destinations, even though I'm
closer to Japan than to California.)
