You’ve never seen data presented like this. With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, statistics guru Hans Rosling debunks myths about the so-called “developing world.
Sometimes I think TED is all about going ‘wow’ a lot with little real significance (as in: it’s easy to go ‘wow’ at someone moving pictures around on a virtual desktop with their hands but not so attractive when someone wants to urge action to save lives). But Hans Rosling shows the data in such a witty, engaging way with a serious undertone. So this is nothing to do with social media, marketing or copywriting, but one of those snippets that should be compulsory viewing no matter where you’re from.
