Map of Western Cultural Influence

Mike Love created this thing, basing it on Wikipedia links, and it's damn interesting. It connects major players in the development of Western culture, giving larger boxes to bigger players and showing the lines of influence.

I'm not sure I agree with the thing (what does that say about Wikipedia?), but it's fun to look at.

You can view the map here. It will show up at first as just a bunch of dots. Click the cursor over it and it will zoom in to reveal more detail.
