Web Trend Map
the folks at iA, Information Architects, in Japan created this very interesting map of what's going on in the web. the tubes are based on Tokyo's subway lines, that represent categories of the current web buzz.
in the major stop places there are weather forecasts (msn and yahoo are under heavy storm) with a number that is the Web classification (0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 2.5): Facebook is rated as 2.5, whilst useit.com (from Jakob Nielsen usability guru) is still in the web 0.5
you are placed in the center of the picture, right in the comfort of the Emperor's palace :)
