Saw this on the excellent Japan Sugoi site and thought I'd share it with you. It's a map of 200 of the most popular sites on the web, ordered by category, proximity, success, popularity and perspective. it's quite cool and looks very much like the Tokyo subway system (even down to the lines).

It also has the following little things to note, as well as many others to those familiar with Tokyo:

1. Google has moved from Shibuya, a humming place for young people, to Shinjuku, a suspicious, messy, Yakuza-controlled, but still a pretty cool place to hang out (Golden Gaya).
2. Youtube has conquered Shibuya.
3. Microsoft has moved to Ikebukuro, if you know what I mean.
4. Yahoo is in Ueno, a nice place but nothing going on there.
5. Wikipedia now is in Shimbashi, the place for the square and hard-headed Salaryman, like the Wikipedia watchdogs.
6. The Chinese line runs parallel to the “share line” which starts with the main pirates…
7. Paper info designer Tufte is right below the Federated Media, right before joining with the interactive information design circle in a 90 degree angle.
8. “You” are in the Emperor’s palace, in the centre of the network.

For more information, head to the Web Trend 2007 Map webpage.
