Hans Rosling / Gap Minder

So how do you convince Bill Gates to give billions to fight poverty? By using beautiful graphics ... worthwhile design indeed.

Check this nice little demo on the Radio 4 website. So a blog posting of a visual lecture on a website via a webcam. Odd world.

And then there's his lecture for good old TED here. Certainly enough information to digest over a few breakfasts with TED, eh?

And his home website, the interestingly named gapminder.org is full of an amazing array of facts and figures and small coloured balls joyfully bouncing all over the place representing the best teeth to the worst health. Strangely less sobering and more enjoyable than perhaps it should be.
