Hans Rosling is a statistician with a twist: he makes otherwise dull and tedious statistical analysis come to life for you and me! He founded the Gapminder Foundation and entrusted it with the mission to fight “the most devastating myths by building a fact-based world view that everyone understands.” Hans Rosling is known for exploring the links between economic development, agriculture, poverty and health. And he is a genius at making a 2D graph vividly convey about 5 dimensions at once.

Blogger Om Malik posted a fantastic video of Hans Rosling’s presentation on the theme of global population growth. Click here to watch it.
