Kevin Kelly was interested in seeing how people imagined the online world, so he asked them to simply draw a map of the Internet, and indicate their homes on the map. With that, the ‘Internet Mapping Project’ was born.
The ‘Internet Mapping Project’ takes maps drawn from people of different age groups and experience levels and posts them online for others to see.
