Rosling’s World

Look, I don’t really like using the blog to post a video and disappear, but I’m gonna need to do an exception with this one.

It’s a short (56’) documentary about my personal hero, Dr. Hans Rosling, aka “I’ve a semi-controlled attention deficit hyperactivity disorder”. They accompany him in a few gigs (including TED) and share interesting conversations about his crusade to bring data and statistics back into the decision-making process. It also includes anecdotes like how he met Larry Page and Sergey Brin and sold them the Gapminder software in order to start the foundation (and getting his son and girlfriend hired, by the way).

Oh, I almost forgot, it’s in Swedish. But worry not, you have English subtitles available:
