Stats on Poverty: There are many reasons why I love this video

23 08 2013

If you haven’t checked out TED before, it’s a website full of short talks about all sorts of topics by all sorts of people, from a blind pianist, to mental health, there’s some great stuff on there – check it out!
Here’s one that I discovered today and is completely fantastic:

Reasons I love it

  • It is choc-a-block full of data and statistics with proper deep meaning
  • There are colourful graphs that move and show 4 dimensions of data in one go
  • The speaker commentates on the moving graph as if it’s a sport
  • There is a mass of information about the changes in world poverty over the last 40 years in all sorts of aspects
  • The man’s passion to make data more accessible to all by providing a link to make it more visual and less dull
  • The guy reminds me so much of one of my maths lecturers from uni with his accent and enthusiasm!

Definitely worth a watch!
