“Pretty neat, huh?”

A four minute information overload on the health and wealth of nations over the last two-hundred years. In the closing seconds, we’re told this easily accessible information involves over 120,000 numbers. Impressive, certainly.

I shall have to see if I can dig out the Joy of Stats off the iPlayer. And then see if I can find an hour when I can actually concentrate on it.

    It’s definitely worth taking the time to watch in full, he’s a bloody good presenter and knows his stuff.

    A lot of the animation comes from his TED talk from a few years back, the first TED I’d seen, and that was very good as well.
