As the topic says, post a picture that represents the Internet!

Here's my submission, from DeviantArt!

I imagine the internet as one of those children's rollercoaster tables. Everyone has a hand on it, it has high and low points (when it comes to content), and complex.

Not quite what the topic asks for, but still. ^^;

Maybe unoriginal... but I think this pic fits the scenerio.

Image

Being the internet is linked across the world and is also manmade, I used a picture with human hands holding the world.

I think Break's pic describes it better though.

Doc's pic is chaotic and messy... cha-ching! There's your internet. Complete with nyankitty, fire breathing unicorn riding rambo cats, and a helluvalot of rainbows. Doc's pic, so far, describes it the best... Considering you can find just about everything on the net.

This reminded me of a certain comic strip.

Mind you, I'd call this a rare exception.

Yep.

Reality swirled in a wholly blue manner, revealing absolutely nothing of merit. Things flashed madly in and out of existence like some entirely other sort of phenomena. On a whim, Kurt Vonnegut imploded, taking a sizeable hunk of Massachusetts with him. However, seeing as Massachusetts wasn't entirely sure it existed, the chunk wasn't all that big.

I think that picture in particular was made by a DA artist who makes the rounds on 4chan's comics board for being really stubborn and unwilling to improve his work.

Oh my jesus. Yeah, he's horrible. Same crap over and over, thinks he's funny, doesn't take crits.

Ironically it mentions akreon in the name too, for some reason, and she's infamous for not taking crits either and being generally unpleasant.

But that's just about every "popular" DA user ever.

DeviantArt... pony porn, other porn, some tits and pictures of people cutting themselves... yeah giving anyone feedback that doesn't start with OMG THATS SO AMAZING over there generally tends to end poorly.

You guys must have some pretty bad experiences at da o_O''
I've commented on a few works by some popular artists, and they seem pretty happy to receive critiques on their work. Maybe I've just been lucky so far or something.

I've dealt with this crap for over ten years now. Artists, at least most of them, don't seem to mature. Ever.

The ones that never take crits, never improve. It partly fills me with glee, seeing someone I knew ten years ago still drawing at an amateur level. Bothers me though when they're still getting asspats and praise. They'll never learn, but whatever. Their loss.

What Hollow said. While people legitimately trying to improve their craft can't get but maybe five page views a month and maybe a comment every other month, the dude uploading grainy pictures of his wife's chest from his cell phone has 14,000 followers. There's a reason I just troll people there for the most part, now.

That said, back on topic... Map of Online communities courtesy of XKCD.com. Warning. It's BIG.

I love maps. That's a good one, and I'm curious to see what a 2013 edition would look like! The landscape of the Internet changes so fast...
