How to write Websites Design

Dungeons and Dragons is connected to Google according to this diagram from the New York Times (hat tip: Boing Boing).


I am connected to everything else. This interesting diagram and the accompanying article was written by Adam Rogers who used to work at Wired. We think these types of diagrams are brilliant for website optimisation. Funnily enough, I used to write for Wired. I produced a diagram for them that linked video games to everything. It's six degrees of separation by diagram.

How Pong invented the Internet. From Wired 11/2004. Hat tip: me. I wrote it. I love good diagrams.


I've must have spent a month researching this piece and I wrote tens of thousands of words of notes. The whole thing was boiled down into a network diagram by Wired's patient design team. One day I'm going to set up a computer games history site. (In the meantime, you can read a brief history of computer games on my personal site.)

You website is your shopfront, get it right.
