6 Billion Others


Wow. Just wow.

6 Billion Others is probably the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. "6 billion Others' aims to create a sensitive and human portrait of the inhabitants of the planet." You choose one of thousands of photos. You'll be taken to a page where there's a seamless video of that person speaking about Love, Fear, Dreams...

It's incredibly powerful to look into the eyes of regular people from all over the world - a refugee from Darfur, or a man from the former Yugoslavia, a woman in Kenya, a teenager in Korea - while they talk about what they fear and hope for. Go. Look. Listen.
