    Could find this posted anywhere in this forum. My apologies if it's in another section already. The online comic site XKCD has posted their updated "Map of Online Communities" and I was trying to see if macrumors made it on there. It sure did. You can find it in the Forum's enlarged photo on the bottom right of the photo. I won't post the actual pic because it's huge.

    What I personally like about this is that MR is just across the bay from DigitalSpy, where I used to hang out years ago, picking up some bad habits, before venturing here. Really nice piece of work.

    I like the the "Plains of Awkwardly Public Family Interactions" on the Facebook continent. :)

    Did you spot "Ping"? It's right above "About This Map".

    Why is MR's spot so small? We should be where 4chan is.

    On product release days it extends its territorial waters right up to other shores. Be prepared to have hands on deck.

    We may be geographically small, but we are rich in mineral wealth.

    Hang on, let me host it on my flickr.

    Here's a link to it on my flickr page. If you really want, I will post actual pic, I just didn't think the mods would want a huge pic directly on the site.

    Very nicely done, although I can't zoom out far enough to see all of it properly :/
