Kevin Kelley, Wired Magazine “Senior Maverick” or something like that – & spawner of any number of trendy Pacifica insights – invites you to map the internet!

Some mappers note their age and number of hours on said internet, but flipping through the drawings I can’t quite discern trends based on these self-identifications.
