Thanks Steph! This is a unique site with some very interesting thematic and conceptual maps. For the map analysts among us, there are some good examples of selection criteria being exercised here. For example, one that stuck out was a map of domain codes of the world (e.g: .us, .uk, .in, .au). The font used for the domain codes is sized to reflect relative national populations. Personally, I would have preferred to see font sizes reflect a more 'relevant' variable--like overall presence of each domain code on the web, or the size of national populations using the internet. But definitely a website to check out!
