I was chatting with Zeh Fernando, and thought of a fun concept to create a flash widget to display areas of unrest in the world. The idea was to have users submit links to news articles about death and destruction and link to a node on a world map. This way people could get a better sense of how much of the world is consumed by war.
I should say that the concept is the only thing fun about this. In reality, this “Heat” Map, derived from the urban definition of heat, isn’t really too fun. If I get enough responses I may push through to complete the project. In the meantime, click the link below to launch the map and click around on it to change spots from black (cold) to white (hot). And if you want to see it completed, just let me know.
