This is a concept map of design for the Internet, created when the Internet was a much smaller entity that still fit into a poster-sized diagram. Designed for the American Center for Design Third Annual Living Surfaces Conference, the map attempts to define both the nascent Internet and design as a process for Internet creation.
The top half of the diagram is a concept map describing design. The long horizontal box defines design by linking major concepts in hierarchies. The bottom half of the diagram is a concept map describing the internet. The vertical box defines the Internet, and the horizontal box places it within a context that also includes people, computers, and information.
