Ryan Williams has taken 200 (so far) Web 2.0 applications and plotted them on a map to show how development is distributed across the US and Canada. It’s an interesting way to chronicle the Web 2.0 trend.
Ryan Williams, the map creator, describes his motivation:
We all know Silicon Valley is hot when it comes to web startups. But, what about other areas of the country? Are there any hidden hotbeds of web talent? What other groups were in the northwest along with Fourio? These were some of the questions I was looking to answer. Now, Web 2.0 can be visualized, using what else, but the Google Maps API and Yahoo Geocoding API.
