The Map of life, the universe and everything…

I came across this map in a BBC article about an interview with Sir Tim Berners Lee. It is a sort of map of the internet, or rather various development “streams” joining together or sometimes petering out in the badlands. It is interesting for a techy like me, although I don’t claim to understand it all (or indeed all that much!)
