Hot on the heels of Ross Dawson’s trend predictions for 2008 comes the IA Web Trends 2008 — in Beta (with thanks to Jen from Innovation Feeder). There are obvious design similarities here (I believe the IA folks from Tokyo were inspired by Ross’ efforts last year), but this map has a different focus. It is more to do with the brands behind the trends, with the trends variously appearing as place names or features.
And one thing I do like is that this is in Beta. That’s right, if you feel that something is missing, you can submit a site for inclusion. I can’t guarantee that your nomination will get in, but there are some big players and some emerging trend makers that seem to be missing. Is there someone or some site you feel deserves a spot?
