Here’s a video worth watching, even if a bit long (about 25 mins.).
Several things to notice in this video:
- statistical storytelling with amazing graphs (of interest to both students of narrative theory and visual communication or information design)
- fresh perspective on globalization, economic development, history, and environmental issues
- the power of software and animated statistical graphs to help tell stories that can change (how we see) the world
- Rosling’s message to bloggers: use blogging to connect to the whole world instead of reinforcing the homogeneity of the Western world. How do we do this? How do you do this?
