Hans Rosling on the Joy of Stats

February 2nd, 2011 3 Comments

Speaking of a well-spent hour learning from the best, I highly recommend watching the BBC special called “The Joy of Stats” narrated by Hans Rosling (@hansrosling), another smart person Paul (@ppedrazzi) introduced me to years ago; yes, there’s a trend there.

Aside from the big brain on Hans, the man’s exuberance about data is contagious.

Update: Apparently, the embed was only good for a certain amount of time. So, I removed it. You can and should watch the full episode over on Gapminder.

    Saw that. BBC took it private after a short window. You can watch it in full at Gapminder. Updated the post.
