XKCD’s Map of Internet Communities 2010

It’s as if Randall Munroe of XKCD has been eaves dropping on the conversation. Shortly after Ethan Bloch posted his updated version of Munroe’s original map, which we posted on this blog earlier on last month, he went and posted his own take on the Map of Online Communities 2010 and it is LEGENDwait for itARY !

The details on this map will keep your eyes glued on the screen for some time while reading all the indecipherable small print on each isle and sea. I really love how he depicted the blogosphere as a peninsula of conservative and liberal blogs separated by “the Bay of Flames” or how Craiglist has a giant crater at the edge of the island as a result of them removing their adult services. Certainly this is one juicy comic from XKCD.

    I like this one more: it is more realistic and seems to be more accurate as well! Thanks for the share!

    You know, someone needs to create this style of map but instead of basing the size on the number of users, base it on company evaluation or revenue. This way, I think we'll be able to spot services with just a few million users making money through sales, not just advertising.

    My 2 cents!
