28. Live Population Map

Leave a comment

This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while.  Below are links to two live populations maps, they show births and deaths where they are occurring as soon as they are reported.  One is for the US and one is for the entire world… totally fascinating (especially the world).  Open them both up and watch for a few (5?) minutes…

  • What are some of your observations?
  • I find watching this to be an emotional experience.  What emotions does watching this produce for you?
