I just spotted this in an e-mail newsletter from Mapping Worlds, a dutch cartography studio. I think Desmond Spruijt of MW has posted here a few times, a couple of years ago...
Anyways, here are some cool flash maps/cartograms. I really like how the cartograms are done, and by disconnecting some countries/continents, you avoid some of the distortion that you get if you just run the cartogram algo directly on a dataset with full topology. For all I know, these cartograms might be done by hand, by the way - which would explain why they look so good...
