5,000 Years in 90 Seconds

I love this. The history of the Middle East (the other moving maps on the site are cool, too).
Of course, the question isn't just what the Mideast looked like thousands of years ago, but also what the region will look like in a few decades. Jeffrey Goldberg speculates about that in the most recent Atlantic Monthly. I'm not sure how far I'd buy into this speculation, but it's certainly interesting.
