"developing" world

I came across this google video of Hans Rosling. He is professor of international health at Sweden's world-renowned Karolinska Institute, and founder of Gapminder, a non-profit that brings vital global data to life. In contrast to the lack of WOW of a couple of posts ago, Hans cleary loves communicating. And the use of graphics through Gapminder are great. In the clip above, he highlights some of the changes in the developing world.

The video was recorded in February 2006 in Monterey, CA.
Duration: 20:35)

I haven't checked them out, but there more examples of using gapminder as a way of showing statistics.
