A Village of a Hundred People

This is a well-considered flash website that provides interesting facts about the entire world population as if it were proportional to just 100 people in all.

These days, its easy to get overwhelmed with statistics in today's global world. There are always millions of this or thats happening on a daily basis, but few of us really have the frame of reference to draw upon. It's refreshing to find statistics parred down to be more comprehensible, and given visual representation. By having to explore these hidden facts within each characters illustration, you're more engaged and therefore more likely to remember some of these statistics.
