Found over at the only recently found SpiekerBlog, a wonderful diagram for those who love cartographied information. The estimated top 333 most influential websites in the world, provided by Information Architects.
There is an odd pleasure in scrolling through the original size map, of letting the connections unfurl themselves. It leads to my sense that indeed the “eye” is strutured architecturally, with a loose correspondence between affective, captialized centers of traffic, nexi of condensed exchange and translation…and the nexi of perceptual subjectivity, Dennettian “centers of gravity”, abstract, REAL and shifting. Maps of consciousness and commerce…more than a metaphor or analogy.
