I have to admit: I am a Hans Rosling fan. His fourth TED Talk: 10 years of UN data. Number four in a series.

Citing TED.com:

  • The talk. "Hans Rosling reframes 10 years of UN data with his spectacular visuals, lighting up an astonishing -- mostly unreported -- piece of front-page-worthy good news: We're winning the war against child mortality. Along the way, he debunks one flawed approach to stats that blots out such vital stories."
  • 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."
