MIT: 6 Greeks among the 10 most famous people of all times
Pantheon is a new project from the Macro Connections group in M.I.T.’s Media Lab. It has collected and analyzed data on cultural production from 4,000 B.C. to 2010. With a few clicks on its website, which just went live, you can swing through time and geography, making plain the output of, say, Brazil (largely soccer players) or Belarus (politicians).
For now, you are legitimately famous, the M.I.T. team has decided, if a Wikipedia page under your name exists in more than 25 languages. The search for the most famous people in the world for the past 6000 years, showed that 6 out of the top 10 are Greeks!
