Map of online communities (xkcd)

xkcd
A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language

This comic is one of my daily stops, the humor is so nerdy it almost hurts.
I just love it. Especially since for quite some of those jokes you have to have quite some education to get them.

This is the latest comic, a map of online communities.
And there went quite some thought into it too. Note the compass rose and all the little details.
Map Of Online Communities
Even "your base" is there ;-)
