Updated Map of Online Communities

You might remember how Randall Munroe of xkcd created a map of the internet in 2007. A lot of things have changed since then, so he made a completely new map to reflect the state of online communities today. Just a portion of the map is shown here. Go to xkcd and enlarge the map, and you'll find Neatorama in the inset of the Blogosphere area (in the Sea of Opinions), a tiny island off the coast near Deadspin and Lifehacker. Look around, and you'll see plenty of cleverness, such as Facebook's privacy controls isolated in a pool of lava, and a meteor crater where Craiglist's adult services used to be.

Looks like my site is there, too, appropriately right next to the Sea of Zero Comments, except, like everyone else, he misspelled Miss Cellania's Blogs.
