World for Sale is ready - I think…

I wasn’t happy with the first version - big, chunky map, way too big for the page. And I never really liked the Mercator projection anyway - since when is Greenland the same size as Africa???
So, back to tons of Javascript and CSS (again) and I cooked up a draggable version, a la Google Maps - looks a lot cooler. And I discovered the Winkel Tripel projection - much much better.

I even got inspired by the new iPhone interface and it can spin by itself if you accelerate it fast enough. Geeky :)
