Faces of the Dead

Wow. This is an incredibly sad but clear example of the power of interactive graphic design.

It's entitled Faces of the Dead and graphically illustrates members of the U.S. Services who have died in Iraq.

Each pixel square represents one soldier and when clicked on highlights the name, age, branch, state and hometown of the brave soul.

Note to self: This is exactly what newspapers and magazines ought to be doing online.
