Map of the internet, can you spot the geocache?

One of the most recent xkcd comics has a map of online communities with relative sizes based on activity in the community. Among other things, geocaching gets a decent sized mention. Now can you find it?

Im going to go slightly OT here too, but it is a comic. Might have been appropriate on the "posted from my crappy phone" thread.

Classic Dilbert. Just replace the word "UNIX" with either "Garmin" or "Magellan", and replace the word "computer" with "GPS"

Interesting that Geocaching is basically as big as Second Life!

I guess the area next to geocaching named "latitude" refers to google latitude not latitude 47 ??? (which is also geocaching)
