Cosmic 140. The 140 most influential Twitter users, their #name #handle #category #influence #activity, when they first started and what they first said.
Note
From the 04. March 2010 iA blog: "It’s one year since our last Web Trend Map. A lot has happened, but there are not enough changes in the landscape of domains in the last 12 months to create another domain-based Web Trend Map. The big changes happened one level higher, on the social layer, that is: On Twitter and Facebook. Since Twitter is becoming an alternative web protocol that—together with Facebook—gets closer and closer to replacing the domain/search paradigm, we decided to make an info graphic that shows how, and through whom, Twitter developed into what it is now, close to its 4th birthday. What Is It? We call it Big Bang. It shows the explosive development of Twitter since the beginning from its center (birth) with two people, to its edges (today) with 75 million people. Well aware that a big paper thin disc is probably going to be a bitch to print and a big pain to put on the wall—we are still going to try to print it circle round. Please don’t faint just yet. Here is the logic: The main circle represents the amount of people within twitter. Instead of North-South-East-West, we divided the circle in different content categories. We tried to arrange the content areas so that similar categories are neighboring, and contrary categories are opposite. The circles within the circle represent the followers of a selection of the most relevant twitterers. The circles represent on a 1:1 scale what piece of the pie each twitterer covers. They have a spread (follower score) and a core (list score). Each bubble will feature the first tweet of that user. For some high activity accounts we might need some help to determine what the first tweet was." More at https://ia.net/topics/meet-big-bang-our-next-trend-map/

Web Trend Map 4. The State of the Web Mapped onto Tokyo's Metro System.
Note
From the 02. June 2009 iA blog: "It hangs in the headquarters of Google, Microsoft, Facebook, WordPress, and Yahoo! Japan. Even the CERN in Geneva has its own copy… It has been featured all across the web from TechCrunch to BoingBoing, and Gawker. The Web Trend Map plots the Internet’s leading names and domains onto the Tokyo Metro map. Domains and personalities are carefully selected through dialog with map enthusiasts, and every domain is evaluated based on traffic, revenue, and character. We grouped together closely associated websites, ensuring that every domain is on an appropriate line. As a result, the map produces a web of associations: some provocative, some curious, others ironically accurate." More at https://ia.net/topics/wtm4/

Web Trends V3.0
Note
From the 11. January 2008 (and other dates) iA blog: "As you can tell, we’ve redesigned the Web Trend Map from scratch. It’s now presented as an isometric landscape. It employs the Kanto area as its metaphor with two additional layers: one showing the brand evaluation of the main sites, and another their interface. We’ve invested another two hard weeks of work into this, so you’d better madly love it. Just like Windows Vista, it may be 'the last of its kind.'"

Note
From the 30. December 2006 iA blog: "The iA Trend Map shows all the big players, the current Internet trends and how they’re connected, using the Tokyo Metro map. It’s totally unscientific and almost useless, but definitely fun to look at." More at https://ia.net/topics/webtrends2007/
