graphics can make a difference
The Global Health expert Hans Rosling still inspires me with his Ted-talk Let my dataset change your mindset; about the importance of data visualization and the need to create insight to get a better understanding of the world we live in.
“… the statistics of the world have not been made properly available. Because of that, we still have the old mindset of developing in industrialized countries, which is wrong. And animated graphics can make a difference.” (Hans Rosling, New Insights on Poverty, Ted, March 2007)
