    I loved the comic already, but this is on a whole other level.

    Someone should do one of the late '90s Internet, and then animate it morphing into today's, like Pangaea into the continents.

    I be a pirate, sailing the seas of the web communities, not tied down to any space, stealing what I can from every place.


    Though I do think there should be Something Awful raiding sites on each community.

    Arr, it be a small island off the coast of WoW! I assume it's so small because only one guy ever posts there: The massively schizoid Anonymous

    I love how he depicts usenet as a sunken continent not unlike Atlantis or Lemuria.

    Aye, but this be a map of the inhabited lands of INTERNET. Though there be many visitors, there be no-one who truly lives in the Land of Porn, save for the fabled Suicide Girls!

    And Usenet is a sunken island.

    It's more a map of online communities than the whole Internet.

    I still like my animation idea. It would be even cooler if you went back to the BBS days, or perhaps even ARPANET.
