This is an excellent example of Flash used to create a rich, deep interactive information graphic. The full animated, interactive version appears on the site here.

Even in Flash this could not have been easy. The project required significant artistic and programming skills. It would take a lot of work but I'd bet that this could be done in HTML5 with the <video> tag, javascript, and CSS. What is missing is a tool that would make the choreography of all those elements straightforward. I hope someone is working on creating an HTML5 workbench.

The link came to me via Gruber here.
