Many thanks to Tami Brisset (our favourite New Orleans cop) for giving me heads up to a map based on Tokyo's subway map which attempts to chart the interconnected-ness and relative popularity of the internet's top 200 websites
This is their second version of the map, and if you know the Tokyo subway map there's a number of in-jokes relating to the lines. For example "Google has moved from Shibuya, a humming place for young people, to Shinjuku, a suspicious, messy, Yakuza-controlled, but still a pretty cool place to hang out (Golden Gaya)..... Yahoo is in Ueno, a nice place but nothing going on there......Skype has conquered a place that doesn’t exist."
The six-month weather forecast is based on whether outlook is looking bright or stormy for the companies. Look out for a updated map due in December 2007.
Excellent find and if only someone would do the same based on London's Tube Map - you could have some new movers and shakers such as twitter, moo and joost appearing on the new DLR extension and see if they move to the Central Line next year.
