The Internet as a game of Risk

Posted at 12:57 PM on May 2, 2007 by Sanden Totten

Previously on The Loophole:

Sanden, frustrated with Internet buzzwords, discovers something called Semantic Web . . . and then shudders at the thought of machines taking over our lives . . . and subduing us with even more buzzwords, like Web 3.0, Matrixism and Transhumanism.

Andrew picks up on the idea of Web 3.0 by asking how the Internet could be more intuitive?:

"The web is linear, and web pages are analogs for the printed page . . . But what if you could navigate the web like a star map? Or how about a house, or a city?"

And today, Andrew's wish is fulfilled. The web comic xkcd has completed a cartography of our vast Interweb showcasing the various regions, legions and exotic locals. Click here and enjoy.
