Content technologies given graphic treatment

The good folks over at CMS Watch took a stab at grouping some of the better-known content management technologies in a clever map, looking very much like the San Francisco subway system. Interesting concept, and useful for those trying to decipher the jargon-laden market of increasingly complex offerings.

Don’t look for component content management systems (used to manage and aggregate chunks of content to create larger information products, such as help systems or technical documentation) to be shown in this metropolis, though – seems those systems must live in an off-the-map suburb, unlike the “Europolis” and similarly cleverly-named areas of town. Maybe, on a future map, we can anticipate an inset to this specific subset of content technologies?
