YouTube + TED change Hans Roslings life

You’ve never seen data presented like this. With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, statistics guru Hans Rosling debunks myths about the so-called “developing world.” Hans is one of the best presenters in the world according to me and I will promise you that this presentation is worth watching.

The Swedish TV-channel SVT made a really good documentary film about how it change his life:

After Hans Rosling made this presentation he had to put away his academic career – now everyone wants to listen to what he has to say about internationl health. This was made possible threw the amazing site TED and YouTube.

My grandfather, Harry Nord, and my father Yngve Nord both met Hans while working in Mozambique in 1982-83 with charity. Both of them told me he was a special and very inspiring man.
