In this video, Hans Rosling demonstrates GapMinder, a tool for “unveiling the beauty of statistics”. The content for the brief video is the change in the life expectancy & income throughout the world in the last two centuries. Gapminder looks like a really neat tool, and the trends described through the tool are interesting.
2007 was certainly the year of Twitter. Late last night I saw a tweet from Tim Lauer referring me to a Perl script from Damon Cortesi “that pulls down your public tweets and allows you to graph them using Numbers.” Pretty neat! Here is what it came with.
Update: Looks like someone has modified this script to work online.
