Haiti Earthquake: 360° Video on

Never underestimate the ability of video to tell a story or to put you into an environment. The world is watching the news of the earthquake from Haiti right now. Here is a video player on CNN's web site that gives you the ability to pan and turn the angle of your view as the truck that the camera is sitting on rolls down the street.

I apologize that the video automatically plays, but there doesn't seem to be a setting I can control to change this. Normally, I would just link to the video in that case. The content of the video is important enough AND the technology is cool enough that I posted it anyhow. Having a video simply autoplay is just too obnoxious.

Video removed.
