Stephen Van Dyke has an innovative work

Mr. Van Dyke way of seeing the flow of information:

Just read this great idea:

Here’s how HE sees news travel:

how news travels on the internet infographic

Miscellaneous links to sites listed:

  • Dark Matter
    • Glenn Reynolds called email “the dark matter of the blogosphere” in a Wired interview. Naturally I extended this phrase to IM (Instant Messaging) , IRC (Internet Relay Chat) and forums. (link via blogosphere.us)
  • MetaNews (I wasn’t sure what else to call it, it’s like collaborative blogging, except Google News)
    • Fark - users post news and comments, which are hand-picked by admins, TotalFark (a listing of everything submitted, huge list) is a sort of “dark matter” as well.
    • Slashdot - the grandaddy of the genre. More technically oriented.
    • MeFi - shorthand for MetaFilter, blogging on crack (all users can post?). Not accepting accounts.
    • BoingBoing - similar to MetaFilter, more blogging on crack.
    • Google News - through the magic of Google… the news. Limited sources.
  • Greater Blogosphere - basically just a high traffic blog, sometimes the lines blur between this and MetaNews
    • Instapundit - Glenn Reynolds again, probably the most read blog on the Internet.
    • Waxy.org - A high traffic blog that has a lot of offbeat news. Made the “StarWars Kid” popular.
  • Lesser Blogosphere - me, basically… we’re all lowly citizens waiting for our 15 minutes, just like Bob’s Qveere Eye parody (yes, it was me who posted it to Fark). While we wait, we link and blab.
  • Blog Indexing - these are services that show what’s popular based on how many people link to it in a certain period.
  • Traditional “Big” Online Media - once they pick up a story, it can become a story again, how’s that for echo chambers?
  • Offline Media - hey what the… I can’t link to them :)
