In that 5-minute CNN segment, Hans gives us so much insight! I love the way he focuses on the *meaning*, not the data itself.

Haven't had a chance to watch the documentary yet, but looking forward to it. Thanks for the tip about using subtitles!

(P.S. You might want to update the link in the 2nd-last sentence, which currently points to http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/2012/01/www.gapminder.org/ .)

Thanks for posting. Dr. Rosling's visual style brought disease statistics to life in his TED talks - great speaker!

Thanks for the post, I was just wondering do you know what tool he uses to create those visualizations and whether it's publicly available?

Well, he's Swedish, and they're simply the best when it comes to numbers :-) I've seen both of his presentations on TED and they're stunning. Thanks for the link to the documentary, should be good...

Great stuff, Garr!

Thanks for the videos. He is very inspiring!


Good to know about Dr. Hans Rosling and data visualization. Very nice post!


I'm one of your biggest fans Garr, and also Rosling's.. However, I think we tend to exagerate sometimes in our appreciation of other people, to the point that we glorfiy them!

Sincere regards
