The Global Time Machine

Randy Murray proposes a Global Time Machine:

I want a 3D globe that I can view. By default, it’s set to NOW. It will show the global weather, but as I look at the globe, I can also see news events. I can see what’s happening all over the planet, and if I want, I can zoom in for increasing levels of detail, for video, for reporting, for analysis.

But there’s more than news. I can see, if I choose, facts. I can see population numbers. I can see industrial numbers, economic facts, details about the health of people and the environment. I can see practically everything.

This is an amazingly cool idea. Read the whole post as he goes into more detail about this interactive 3D globe he imagined. Amazing.
