Hans Rosling: GapCast #1 Health, Money & Sex in Sweden.

Here's the latest from Hans Rosling's blog. His use of weather channel type technology for this video leads to much more vivid looking demonstrations.

This permits much more interaction between Rosling and the data as it changes over time and permits both Rosling and the data to be visible at all times. Compare it with the video capture difficulties that show up even in the very professionally cone TED talks where the camera switches back and forth between Rosling and the screen and where Rosling is not brightly lighted for fear of washing out the projection screen.

With the weather channel technology approach, both Rosling and the data are brilliant and vivid.

Definitely worth a look.
