This is all very odd.Maybe it's a US multinational or a university (as I was taught in computing that the low range IP addresses were reserved for US academic institutions/multinationals). I wouldn't rule out a multinational/university trying with BTC mining.As more people become aware of mining (BTC for profit),more and more entities will be getting in on the act.

I checked the IP with this :http://www.techzoom.net/tools/check-ip.en
I typed in 0.0.0.0 and this is what showed up:

Question is what business does ICANN have with mining bitcoins? Maybe they're trying to obtain them or a possible imposter using an IP mask to hide the fact that he's hogging the network.

umm, the relevant bit is right in your post:

Comment:        This block is assigned for use as local
Comment:        identification addresses. 0.0.0.0 refers to
Comment:        "this" host on "this" network. 0.0.0.0

what that means is that it is an ip that is only used on local networks, not the internet.  like 192.168.2.1 is usually a home routers ip address (not an internet ip address) and 127.0.0.1 is the localhost, which is basically a reference to the current computer.

Please tell me you're trolling, 0.0.0.0 is the address for "broadcast to ALL the networks \o/".

Look at http://blockchain.info/pools , the IP 0.0.0.0 has 67 blocks out of 151 which is 44% of all blocks found in 24 hours!

BEST WEEK EVER.

damn, if your for real, i'm genuinely sorry to hear it.  glad you've managed to keep your sense of humor.

No, the first two were fake. The third was true. Also this week: I caught the flu from one of my family members at the funeral, a sibling was involved in a domestic disturbance, I found out my only surviving grandparent has brain cancer, a tornado hit the town where my parents live, and apparently I donated 37 BTC the night I wrote this to victims of a Bitcoin scammer.

Let this be a lesson to you, kids, don't drink and bitcointalk.

OK.. 0.0.0.0 aside.. got a serious question... 

How do you come up with the IP address of the miner/pool?  Looking at raw blocks in block explorer I don't see an IP address anyplace ..Huh

I do not think it's single entity but maybe it's one unofficial IP address of deepbit?

The chart uses known IPs of pools (that people report, or that are shown in pool docs for connecting your miner).

That's the right answer to the wrong question.

When a Bitcoin block is found, the node that found it broadcasts it out to other nodes. blockchain.info is connected to hundreds of nodes, so by listening in on the new block announcements, it can quickly determine which Bitcoin node on which IP address found the block.

It also checks coinbase transaction.  This aids in detection of pools which put custom data in the coinbase.  For p2pool it is essential given p2pool has no fixed IP address.

There is no way to know the origination IP address only the first IP address you see.  A pool could obfuscate their blocks by not allowing connections to bitcoind from unknown sources and broadcasting blocks through relays.  For example if you knew the IP address of one of Mt.Gox bitcoind you could send block there where it would be broadcasted to the rest of network (including blockchain.info).

If, at this point, anyone still doesn't get 0.0.0.0 is NOTHING (null), there is nothing simpler than this explanation:
