Many of us spend hours per day on the internet. Do we have a map or a model in our head? a physical metaphor? Do we know where we are in it?

One response to Kevin Kelly’s Internet Mapping Project

Kevin Kelly’s Internet Mapping Project asks people to draw and share they way the see the internet as a physical space:

The internet is vast. Bigger than a city, bigger than a country, maybe as big as the universe. It’s expanding by the second. No one has seen its borders.

And the internet is intangible, like spirits and angels. The web is an immense ghost land of disembodied places. Who knows if you are even there, there.

Yet everyday we navigate through this ethereal realm for hours on end and return alive. We must have some map in our head.

This is an activity you should do as a drawing of the way you see the internet (personally). What does it look like in your head?

Download the map template (PDF) and print it out (or use a blank sheet of paper). With a pen or pencil (or crayon)  draw your map. Include where you are in it, but also, consider including some representation of how other people are part of your map.

Example for "Your Personal Map of the Internet":
