Everyone who follow the “stem cell news” noticed that whole last week passed under “obama-stemcell” stamp. US president reverses Bush embryonic stem cell ban. So what??? Why is it matter to the world?

I just remembered a talk given by Alisa Miller in TED conference last year – how US shares the news about the news. The message is drawn in pictures:
this is true world map:

and this is how Americans see the world through mass media (taken from Alisa Miller’s talk):

That’s explain whole obama-stemcell bubble. Also this picture explains why we know less than ever about the world.

Why did I tell you that? I just wanted encourage you to use an incredible tool Worldmapper in your presentations.
