Debunking myths with data

Normally I don't recommend video blogs, because I know people's time is scarce (or I presume it is; mine is), and it's easier to control one's time by reading than by watching.

This morning, I found Hans Rosling's Debunking Myths about the World. It's a video of his talk at TED showing Trendalyzer's use in helping us think more productively about the world. It's worth its twenty minutes, both to learn a bit about the world and to learn a bit about another way to look at data.

Now look at Gapminder to learn more on your own.
