From globes to maps; from serious to silly

How do we resume regular, irreverent programming after yesterday's Blogblast for Peace? By just plunging in:

Herewith a map of the Blogosphere that I found "stumbling" around the Internet the other evening. It's not how I would have imagined it -- but I'm guessing the artist may have had a map of Middle Earth by J.R.R. Tolkien in mind?

You can get a larger version of the map by clicking on it. I found the map here.

In the meantime, I'm working on a big project -- actual legal work, believe it or not -- so I may not get back here until late today... or even tomorrow.

Oh I do like that map....I think my hubby would appreciate it....it would give him some idea as to what part of the blog world I am in at any given time....

Cheers...and happy Thursday!

Cool! On which of "the Internets" did you find it?

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Sorry...I couldn't resist!

[If you don't know what I'm referring to, check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internets_(colloquialism)]

My son said this is called a Map of the Internet, not just the blogosphere..
You could fool me, but he's the geek in the house

I'm still sailing the noob sea, sadly....

For some reason, I've always thought of the Blogosphere as more of a galaxy sort of area rather than a series of land masses!

I think Patti's son may be on to something!

I always thought of the internet as an ether kind of place - the fact that each email is split into bizillion parts when sent and reunited into the original sentences at the destination - because the Army developed it that way for security reasons - makes it more stellar to me! Makes me believe that some days the email shoots through my brain and takes away any contiguous thoughts.

Part two -

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I love that sound! spelled out! My daughter makes that sound a lot - when normal life is so ludicrous...

XKCD.com is a brilliant site, and the guy who drwas them is an absolute genius.

Oh my, I did not realize My Space was...such a big space. Maybe it's hip to be on My Space but I always think of crazy teenagers when I think of My Space. (this includes my two teenagers)
