Where's the web going?

Or maybe you should be asking where is the web taking you?

If your first thought after seeing this picture is its uncanny resemblence to the London tube map, you are not too far away. The web trend map has been 'derived' from the Tokyo Metro map.

The web trend map is a pictorial representation of the 200 most successful websites on the web today. If you have not heard of some of these sites and are feeling a little outdated, use this clickable version here to quickly travel to these sites and find out what makes them so popular. Most of us on the Internet are travelling on these lines, so you might as well give them a shot too! There are also some Japanese, Chinese and German websites featured here - nerds don't panic if you haven't heard of them before. You are still a nerd!

I was fortunate to use one such map in Tokyo and belive me, it is not that complex once we start using these websites/ maps.

The Tokyo maps now looks pretty easy to interprett after roaming around Tokyo for a while .....:)
