data visualization

Gapminder presents an amazing way to visualize data on a graph over time. Click “go straight to the graph” for a demo. Set the axes you’re interested in; pick specific countries if you wish; and hit the “play” button to see changes over time. The demo just shows the tip of the iceberg — I was lucky enough to see a video of the presentation at this year’s TED conference, which just blew me away — but it’s still pretty incredible.
