Parag Khanna, best-selling author of Second World, has devised a fascinating talk titled “Invisible Maps”. Using the innovative graphic design software Prezi, he presents parts of the world where the lines on the map no longer reflect reality and show how they are changing such as Chinese migration into Russia, oil pipelines in the Mideast, the troubled Afghanistan-Pakistan border, and the birth of new states like Kurdistan, Palestine, South Sudan and Greenland.
See Parag in action at the TED Global conference in Oxford, England.
Please feel free to provide a review on the TED site and to forward it to others.
This was Parag’s first opportunity to visually depict some of his findings from travel/research for “The Second World: How Emerging Powers are Redefining Global Competition in the 21st Century”.
