doug — off the record

just a place to share some thoughts

Making babies

For a Saturday, just a fun little website. And, it’s actually from the .fun domain.

Baby Map is a simple concept.

You’re presented with a flat map of the world and everytime a baby is born into this world, the country flashes. I started this just before I started typing.

Of course, I’m wondering just how this is determined and the site is short on details. I’m guessing that it all involves probability as part of the algorithm.

The actual presentation is impressive and the results don’t come as a surprise even though the method for calculation isn’t given.

I could see a number of ways to use this including a discussion of over population and even challenging facts that are presented without proof.

This computer science teacher could also see brainstorming an algorithm based on real data as the inspiration.
