Data Analysis - Google and Gapminder

In this post I recommended viewing a 20-minute video that is informative. I was curious about what Gapminder was, so I went to their website and did some exploring.

It turns out that the data and tool that Hans Rosling was using for the presentation is the Gapminder Trendalyzer tool, which has been hosted at Google for some time, and as of March of 2007, is owned by Google. So, if you want to tinker with the data at your own speed that Mr. Rosling was showing, go to it.
