New Ted Talks video

http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/140

This looks like a VERY interesting one for those of us who love data and are fascinated by trends, etc. Here, Hans Rosling talks about the end of poverty. I LOVE the written teaser for the movei:

"...He shows us the next generation of his Trendalyzer software -- which analyzes and displays data in amazingly accessible ways, allowing people to see patterns previously hidden behind mountains of stats. (Ten days later, he announced a deal with Google to acquire the software.) He also demos Dollar Street, a program that lets you peer in the windows of typical families worldwide living at different income levels. Be sure to watch straight through to the (literally) jaw-dropping finale."

I just clicked the link to download it to my iTunes to watch later. LUV this Mac!!
