periodic table of the internet

A periodic table of the most popular websites on the internet. websites are categorized according to search engines, internet tools, site ranking, aggregators, web comics, productivity & so on. For those interested, Internet has already been drawn as a world map, a metro map, a mindmap, a network map & a logo map. even an alternative periodic table exists.

Somehow there is a certain kind of luster in visualizing the internet world as a natural world. I guess it gives us some comfort, makes us feel less insecure. Is this the start of a realization that the internet is in fact nature? I mean, how far do we want to take the metaphor? How long do we plan to continue making corny internet-as-natural-phenomenon jokes? I'd say lets get some real work done and start reorganizing some university physics departments today!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
