Global Top 50 Map
Barack Obama is the most important person in the world. If you want to find out if you have made it to one of the other 49 positions in Newsweek's Top 50 then check out this Google Maps mashup.
This map uses the Map Channels Feed API to show the birth places of those who have made Newsweek's Global Top 50. The names are also listed in the map side bar, (the number in brackets shows where in Newsweek's ranking they come). When you click on a map marker an information window opens with a link to the Newsweek article on that individual.
