Data Visgasm: Watch the World Get Richer and Healthier

Talk about bringing the data alive. This clip of Hans Rosling’s work shows the great power of dynamic data visualization. Here we see the entire world get both healthier and wealthier (or or at least less poor), all afloat in some very cool architectural space. Wonderful, riveting stuff. I can’t wait to see the entire show, “The Joy of Stats,” next Tuesday on BBC Four. Our host will be this same Hans Rosling, who says “Statistics is the sexiest thing on the planet.” He may well convince me.
