Subway map of Microsoft’s acquisitions and investments

A neat project and infographic by Robin Richards (@ripetungi, Design Director at JESS3) that lists of all Microsoft’s acquisitions and investments – represented in a detailed subway map (yes, the map is updated and the latest Skype acquisition is on there!).

In a nutshell:

[An] Infographic showing the acquisitions and investments of Microsoft, done as a tube map with each coloured line representing a different industry for each acquisition or investment.  Where the stations meet is where the two industries overlap.  The key at the bottom displays information about the location on the map of the station (company) the year of acquisition or investment.’
