Yeah, I was a little curious about the composition of the latency number 
as well...  A heavily-splayed anycast deployment should have influenced 
that number favorably, I'd have thought, but apparently not.  It's my 
assumption that they ran pings (of some unknown duration) from some 
unknown number of locations, to each of the currently-operated server 
addresses, and combined (averaged?) the results somehow.  But I'd 
certainly be curious as to their actual methodology.
