gapminder

Now here is something that blew my mind… First take a look at this then have a play with this.

I have never come across a better justification for the Web (for computers, even) than this… Gapminder is a revelatory instrument (like a telescope, a microscope): it not only presents statistics in a way that anyone can absorb – but puts it somewhere where anyone with access to the Net can use it… I cannot imagine any aspect of recent human history, economics, nationality, ecopolitics etc etc that it will not illuminate.
