Wait, Where's The Treasure?: A Map Of The Internet

map-of-the-internet-small.jpg

Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE.

This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be to be a pirate captain hunting for buried treasure. I daydream a lot about pirating. Pirating, winning the lottery, and napping. Daydreaming about napping -- that's when you know you're not getting enough sleep at night.

This poster includes one full map of the internet, 4 minimaps showcasing NSA surveillance, most used social networks, most used internet browser, and worldwide internet penetration, list of Alexa Top 500 websites, quick timeline of the Internet History, top software companies and much more!


The map is divided into 2 distinctive parts; the eastern continent, "the old world" showcases software companies, gaming companies and some of the more real-life oriented websites
Western part, "the new world" is composed from two major continent, northern one showcasing social networks, search websites, video websites, blogs, forums and art websites.
All major adult-oriented websites, in addition to varioius warez and torrent sites, are located on the southwestern continent of the map.
In the very south of the map, there is located "Great Southern Land" of obsolete websites and online services.
Outside the main map, there are also 4 minimaps showing NSA monitoring by country, most used browser, most used social network, and internet penetration by country.

Did you hear that? All the adult-oriented websites are located on the southwest continent. Skipper, set a new course -- tonight, we sail for p0rn! "But we always sail for p0rn." Shhhhhhhhhh, you want all the viewers to think we're perverts? "Viewers?! This isn't a f***ing TV show!" CUT TO COMMERCIAL, CUT TO COMMERCIAL. "Sorry captain, but clearly the sun and booze have gotten to you -- consider this a mutiny." Why you son of a piece of shit!

Thanks to Solomon, who got me thinking about Solomon's Key for the NES which I may or may not have just spent the last 30 minutes playing (I did).

    these have far less detail, but I find them much more relevant and entertaining.

    I like how they so quickly ran out of ideas that they ended up resorting to computer manufacturers and their operating systems as "elements of the internet".

  • Torse

    The amount of detail is astounding.
    Really great work.

    ..But the Azeroth major cities aren't even remotely where they should be.

    ggwp, the whole thing is ruined.

    BS! On the real map of the internet, Porngea, the super continent takes up almost the whole thing...
