Seen these around a lot and like 'em. So I thought I'd try and shoehorn just a few of the bigger influences into my own map.
There were a lot that simply couldn't be fitted into those tiny squares. I actually feel guilty about leaving them out, like I'm doing them a disservice.
Anyway what I have shown is just the tip of the iceberg.
