Have you seen the video presentation the GapMinder folks did for google recently?

It was one of the best 1 hour presentations I have seen. Their tools are very cool.

Yes nate. I did see that video. It took me back more than 20 years to grad school where we had to calculate life tables with calculators so we could get "a feel" for how the numbers work. We drew population pyramids with graph paper and rulers. You were into the numbers so much you could visualize how the patterns work but it so cool now to be able to drop this data in software and be able it to show others.

There is nothing like a graphic representation to really see the outliers. I think what I like most in gapminder's stuff is the ability to demonstrate the dyanmic flow from one point in time to another.

Thanks for pointing it out!
