This is a REALLY cool site; you can't beat information in pictures for the MTV generation...
Basically it's a site showing various bits and pieces of information on globes.

World views

Thing about something like this is it only makes me think that someone should put all these sorts of information databases into an actual model of the world and I bet it would provide more answers to economic/food/dogma problems than all the sociologists/theologians and politicians combined.

But then having the answers doesn't automatically mean that the holders of power in our ever-increasingly corrupt society would allow them to be acted upon.
How long before people truly realise their power and emancipate themselves from their strange aspiration to oppression? (and how long until I stop blogging pissed?)

Another thing about this particular site is that you can't help but be amazed at some of the statistics in display concerning Japan; I particularly like the satellite shot and the colour of the electrical light buzzing off of Japan as opposed to somewhere like India where you imagine most of the light on display may be firelight...

Fascinates the shit outta me.
