6 Billion Others

Six Billion Others is a very interesting website and concept. The idea, created by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, was to tell an ongoing story of people from all over the world. His team visited some 65 countries and interviewed 6,000 people.

    Truly AMAZING website !!!! How did you come across it ? My girlfriend and I have been glued to these videos for the past hour. Fascinating.

    A friend sent it to me. Yes, I really enjoyed it. Of course, the obvious problem is that because it is edited, I am sure that it is fairly easy for the producers to manipulate and create the answers they are looking for, some may even be out of context. But, still, I find it great. At least it give voice to others and shows some comparative perspective (although that too could have been manipulated).

    A real fascinating and moving project indeed.
    ps : watching some of the videos reminded me of how fortunate (and priviledged) i am to have a good dentist). Sorry for this frivolous comment but i had to point that out.
