Proof we’re one big digital community

THere’s nothing like a picture to help summarise complex concepts, and since 2007 Randall Monroe has been creating brilliant maps that encapsulate where the growth is in online communities. The picture below says it all. To really enjoy it, browse the full-size version. For the geek, there’s plenty of comedy gold in the map, even though to some extent it’s based on science – as much as you can get any real numbers about online communities.

How big is Second Life?

It’s this big (as of November 2008):


The map comes from this site and you can download the full 13MB version to get a better understanding of the magnitude of Second Life.

We’ve featured maps of the Second Life grid before, and they’re useful to reinforce the scope of virtual worlds. Those who haven’t spent time in a large world have no concept of their size and complexity until shown something 2D like the map above. Combine it with a brief tour of Second Life and the penny starts to drop.

Back in November 2007, Second Life was roughly the size of two Wagga Waggas at nearly 900 square km- it’s grown a lot since then to 1871 square km, which isn’t that far off the size of the Australian Capital Territory at 2400 square km. That should also help provide some mental imagery for the skeptic.

Thanks to New World Notes for the heads-up

Australian Locations on the Second Life grid

Veteran Australian Second Life resident and creator Gary Hazlitt has labelled a version of the excellent work done by another Second Life Resident showing the Australian locations on the grid.


Add to that the numerous mainland Australian presences and it really does illustrate the integral role we play in Second Life.
