this looks great!
i would order the topics so that related ones are next to each other, for
example it is a bit puzzling why http/zinc is not part of webdevelopment, but
if you order them so that you have 
development - web - server ... then zinc and web would be very close and
the exact category would not matter. it could even be in the middle.

same goes for monticello and metacello. aren't they closely related? why is one
in development, the other in working?

putting working next to development would solve that.

i think this order would place related topics close to each other:
working - development - web - server - connectors - data - model - import/export - output - graphics

closing the circle, graphics touches working which relates to the games and
multimedia subtopics too.

this is actually something i preferred from the first version. it was more
fuzzy and didn't make such absolute statements where something belongs that
people could argue about. (ok, maybe i am the only one arguing :-)

maybe also put the svg on github so that people can fork and update it?
