Inspired by Randall ‘xkcd’ Munroe’s Map of Online Communities, Slovakian designer and map-maker Jay Simons sez of his highly ambitious and ongoing art project:

Map of the Internet – First of its kind on such a scale, this map aims for succesful compendation of The Internet to scale suitable for standartized online navigation. This project is still underway, new versions of this map will be available in ulterior months.
Due to the immense size of the Net, only a miniscule portion of it was chosen to represent it on the map. Otherwise, this map would be unreadable and probably undrawable in entire lifespan of average human being. This poster includes one full map of the internet, 4 minimaps showcasing NSA surveillance, most used social networks, most used internet browser, and worldwide internet penetration, list of Alexa Top 500 websites, quick timeline of the Internet History, top software companies and much more!

sirenSiren, the feminist magazine that took issue (and they weren’t alone) with an especially strident and misleading Youth Defence poster last Summer, launched an online edition today.

Sirenette Fiona Hyde writes:

On the site at the moment, we have: an article by Darragh McCausland on being stalked for a decade by a stranger called The Intensity of Her Stare, an article by Michael Garvey on growing up gay in Ireland called Playing House, a piece from our print edition by Megan Nolan on friendship after a big relationship called Looks Like We Made It, and two photo essays by Cait Fahey, one called That’s Mine on her relationship with her brother, and one titled A Vision in Purple on women standing against domestic violence in the Irish Islamic Cultural Centre.
