The Gapminder World

Posted by Paul Smith on 11 July 2007

Saw a TED talk by Hans Rosling about global statistics, which I would thoroughly recommend watching. It will change the way you think about things. The way the stats are presented is really cool, and it turns out that Google (who else?!) has a tool which allows you to play around and produce your own stats in a similar way with The Gapminder World 2006. Well worth a look, and some time spent trying different combinations and countries – it will surprise you!

  1. Good call. Be sure to check out his other TED presentation as well. Now that’s eLearning! As well as the presentation being funny and enthralling, the finale is just incredible and unexpected. This content has the rare honour of being worthy of this blog as well as our work sites.
