The idea was developed and implemented by Worldometers.
We believe that this special webpage carries strong philosophical, symbolic, and aesthetic attributes.
Even the mathematics behind the implementation of this page is deeply fascinating.
7 Billion people so beautifully displayed together on a single webpage is a visual testament of the human condition of every single one of us, and all of us together, on our planet earth.
It is available on the internet for everybody in the world to watch at any time, adding to the feeling of sharing something in common.
It is also a snapshot of an extraordinary moment in history: the exact instant when we reached 7 billion people on earth, captured on October 31, 2011 at 5:49:16 GMT.
We are working on adding more information and developing the idea to its fullest potential, so be sure to come back to visit in the future.
And please, send us your feedback.
