Holy crap! It's the internet!

I read about the Internet Mapping Project over at Boing Boing a few days ago, and of course I had to print a blank map. I spent several glorious hours yesterday drawing the Internet. I'll be sending the original to the Internet Mapping Project, but I wanted to save a copy for myself so I scanned it. Here it is:

I know, you can't really see it in that picture. So I put a giant version on my website at http://kcshaw.net/internetmap.html. I warn you, it's a humongous .gif. ETA: Hey, I just realized if you click the picture above, it embiggens! I've probably just used up all my blogspot picture space with that one.

Totally changing the subject now. I saw guy-who-looks-just-like-Alex at work today! I hadn't seen him for months and was starting to worry he'd dropped out, but no, he's still in school and doing well. I'm so glad!

I rewrote the query for The Weredeer this afternoon. I still want to tinker with it, but it's about ten billion times better than it was. Next step: fix the appallingly bad synopsis for The Weredeer.

You drew that? That's cool. I can't draw worth $#*%.

K.C. Shaw said...

I can't either, actually, although I used to want to be an artist. I don't have the chops for it, though.

Can't draw? Sez you. I bought your book, and if I had friends I'd buy them all copies as presents.

Your map is covered in awesome sauce.

Oh...that is amazing. I'm impressed. Your knowledge of the internet is extensive. The Big Tent o' Porn might be a touch small...

Catherine J Gardner said...

Very, very cool.

Seaslug--lol, thanks! I can doodle, let's put it that way.

Aaron--most of the big tent o' porn is out of sight behind the trees.

Cate--it was a lot of fun to make, that's for sure.

That is so awesome...you should make a t-shirt out of it.

I always pictured the physical incarnation of 4chan being a 100x scale model of the goatse guy. Then again, maybe that's why I don't have any friends.

I just laughed so hard I snorted lemonade out my nose. It buuurns, just like that mental image.
