Battle for Web supremacy

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

Blend Interactive maps points of control for the Web 2.0 Summit in the style of the Risk board game. Areas of the Web are shown as continents, and countries are the areas where major players have "claimed." Click on the movements button to see what areas each company has ventured in to, and click on icons to get more info. A more neutral-colored map might have benefited the paths and icons, but it's still fun to look at. And yes, the geography of the map is fake.
