| View Comments | No TrackBacks

Third in a row. Two years later. Now it is HIV.

Citing TED.com:

  • The talk. "Hans Rosling unveils new data visuals that untangle the complex risk factors of one of the world's deadliest (and most misunderstood) diseases: HIV. He argues that preventing transmissions - not drug treatments - is the key to ending the epidemic."
  • The speaker. "Rosling began his wide-ranging career as a physician, spending many years in rural Africa tracking a rare paralytic disease (which he named konzo) and discovering its cause: Hunger and badly processed cassava. Rosling developed the breakthrough software behind his visualizations through his nonprofit Gapminder, founded with his son and daughter-in-law. The free software--which can be loaded with any data--was purchased by Google in March 2007."
