Publishing 2008 (Also: The Rumpus)

The Rumpus points to this crazy map of publishing trends in 2008 drawn in, er, the style of a subway map.

Alas, I think design may serve to obfuscate, not elucidate, in this case.

Mostly I just wanted an excuse to link to The Rumpus, which is new, and seems kinda fun and kinda snooty, and therefore I think I like it.

For instance, I’ve been waiting for somebody to make this list.

Now we need a list of "systems forced into the style of a subway map".

The London subway map is one of the classic examples used in mathematical topology -- what matters isn't the precise geographical relationship of the nodes but the connections between them.
