Hans Rosling is a revolutionary. About 7 years ago he began confronting data in a new way and a funny thing happened. He found himself changing his mind—about almost everything. His finesse with data visualization has grown since then and so has his understanding. Every human being deserves to hold the power of changing their own mind in the palm of their hand.
To understand how data can change a made-up mind, watch this TED video from a Rosling talk at the U.S. State Department in 2009. It’s mesmerizing. Then go to Gapminder.org and download the power.
