The folks over at Information Architects Japan have created a new version of their WebTrends map. It’s essentially a subway map of the Top 200 websites, and the links between them.
There’s a ton of versions of it, including a clickable ‘live’ map. Stand back, soak it all in and then explore. It’s a pretty fascinating look at the web landscape. One thing I found rather interesting about it is that they labeled sites as Web .5 thru Web 2.5. Not sure i agree with all of their rankings there, but it’s definitely a conversation starter.
