REBLOG — Second Life on the Map of the Internet

Daniel Voyager has stumbled onto something amazing here. The original makers state in the notes (look at the bottom of the map around the center area) that this is nowhere near comprehensive, and is in fact only Version 1.0.

A very interesting map was released recently showing the major sites of web and apparently Second Life is located on the huge map. Second Life is shown at the top of the map under where it says interface. Nearby Rosedale, Humble and Resident Island shown in yellow/orange. Yay.

destroyer of newspapers
source of unending fascination

except for me

Ten million bloody channels
everyone shouting at the top of their lungs
to be heard
appreciated
loved
idolized
and commented on
and I can’t find a bloody thing to watch on Hulu

Hmmm
What’s this thing here…?
I think it’s called a “book”

Guess I’ll give it a go….

End of the Internet

I woke up this morning, and found this sign outside the back of my house.
