    Creating a map of the entire internet would be a difficult task. It grows and changes by the minute so even trying would be pointless. Drawing a map of ‘your personal internet’ is a lot more straightforward. Wired magazine’s ‘Senior Maverick’ Kevin Kelly has asked over fifty people to draw a map of the internet as they see it and the results are, quite frankly, beautiful.

    From simple spider diagrams of the sites people visit to a detailed map, complete with a ‘Pirate Bay’ by the sea and ‘The Cloud’ floating above, the results are varied and well worth browsing through.

    Kevin is still looking for more submissions. You can find out more at his site and browse a gallery of the submissions at his Flickr account.
