Sobering...but what does it mean?

Follow the link below (I couldn't find any way to embed the animation) to see a US map that depicts chronologically and geographically the spread of Wal Mart across America. I'm not doing a good job describing it. Click on the link. Watch the animation. It starts out slow and then...WHAM! The year counter is in the bottom right hand corner and the store counter is in the top left corner. http://projects.flowingdata.com/walmart/
