It's a great map, but after skimming his explanation I didn't see any mention of xkcd. That rubs me the wrong way as this type of map concept is originally Randall Munroe's and it would be common courtesy to give him credit when creating something like this.Aside from that, I'm shocked wowinsider doesn't have a bigger island =P

Um, I hate to say it, but the sort of map dividing the world into communities for humor's sake has been around in print for years and years -- so long that I can't imagine who did it first. Quite possibly an editorial comic of some sort, predecessor to folks like Mike Luckovich and such.Anyway, as entertaining as some may find XKCD's map, it was hardly the first of its kind.

I might be misinformed then. Though xkcd's is the first I've ever heard of. Do you happen to have any links to these other maps? I'd be interested in seein' them.
