Second Life on the map of the internet

Second Life on the map of the internet 1.0

A very interesting map was released recently showing the major sites of web and apparently Second Life is located on the huge map. Second Life is shown at the top of the map under where it says interface. Nearby Rosedale, Humble and Resident Island shown in yellow/orange. Yay.

This has to be one of the best maps of the internet I’ve ever seen and its very cool that the map is divided into continents. I would love to see someone make a metaverse map including SL, Opensim and virtual worlds.

What will you discover ?

“The map is divided into two main parts; software companies, gaming companies and some of the real-world oriented websites are located on the right part of the map, or ‘the old world,'” Vargic told HuffPost in an email. “The websites and majority of Internet itself is located on two eastern continents, the upper one showing social networks, forum websites, blogs, and the lower one filled with adult-oriented websites and Internet crime.”

  1. Reblogged this on Around the Grid and commented:
    Daniel Voyager has stumbled onto something amazing here. The original makers state in the notes (look at the bottom of the map around the center area) that this is nowhere near comprehensive, and is in fact only Version 1.0. You can purchase an unwatermarked copy on Amazon, also according to those notes. For now, though, as Daniel saw, Second Life does have a position on this map; if you prefer coordinates, go to N 85 degrees, W 45 degrees (just east of the Hashtag Peninsula, part of the country of Facebook). WordPress, for all of us users, is at N 35 degrees, E 95 degrees, between Amazon and AOL.


  2. Second Life should be closer to the Island Of Fake Identities & Stalking Island, just north of Friendseeker. Somewhere in the Dramafest Datastream


  3. Were is Opensim island? I’ve heard they have 20 times the regions of Secondlife
    Maybe at least an Inworldz coral reef on the map perhaps?


  4. This is really well done and interesting as there are a lot of places on there I’ve never even heard of! I notice that Barack Obama is listed but not Tim Berners Lee. Plus I saw Tumblr but still can’t find wordpress and why is Steve Jobs tucked down at the bottom with the criminals and defunct websites?? And as has been noted already, Pornlandia would obviously be the biggest continent…
