Where I’ve Been Lately 2008

Where I've Been Lately 2008

Best Viewed Large.

Two years ago I published a graphic showing the favicons of places that I’d recently visited on the internet. I thought I’d take some time (a few hours actually) this afternoon to revisit and refresh that graphic. In order to see this graphic best I’d recommend clicking through the image to Flickr and then clicking on the magnifying glass above the graphic on Flickr to view full size. Best viewed large I suppose as they say.

The image above represents only some of the websites that I’ve visited in the past 2 weeks. The list does not include everywhere I’ve been on the internet. I’ve only chosen to share sites in this graphic that have favicons that pop up when you visit them. Probably about half of the sites that I visit (my own included) don’t have favicons. The above graphic contains 330 different internet sites that I’ve visited.

Some stats on my internet activity over the course of the past 2 weeks. From May 15 until today I have visited 12,601 pages on the internet on my primary laptop computer (MacBook Pro). I have visited more pages than this because this is not my only computer. In addition to my primary MacBook Pro, I have three other PCs that I use regularly to surf the internet. I estimate that I probably load a little over 1,000 internet pages a day.

The number one site that I’ve visited over the past 2 weeks has been FriendFeed. The number 2 site I’ve visited over the past 2 weeks has been flickr. These two sites represent over half of my internet activity over the past 2 weeks.

Below is a list of sites that are included in this graphic.

    Mark, your site is like mine. It doesn’t have a favicon. I’ve gotta figure out how to add one to my site one of these days.

  3. Thanks for visiting my site!
