With the dramatic growth in Internet access from residences and out in public, traditional network measurements increasingly exclude performance behavior seen by the majority of Internet users. Our position is that a new user-centered network measurement platform is needed to include the burgeoning numbers of largely invisible Internet users. This work defines a network measurement platform taxonomy to motivate a three-pronged network measurement platform that provides flexibility, user incentives and reduced impediments for user participation. This continuum of options, along with application-oriented experiments, is needed for an effective platform. Insight obtained from this platform is critical to inform future Internet design choices.
