I got this picture from a friend. Click on the picture to see the large detail. It's absolutely worth studying, you'll find amazing metaphores there. My favorites are: Mordorsoft with pipes spilling evil technologies, the towers of WS-Babel with SOA on top, Ruins of Corba and Semantic web superhighway (under construction). You can print the large image, it's quite well readable on paper and it's a nice picture you can share with your colleagues in your office. Kudos to the creator of the image!
