GapCast Debut: More Hans Rosling videos!

Hans Rosling has developed his first GapCast video with more on the way. This has me salivating after watching his TED speech using Gapminder software he helped develop and which was recently bought by Google (for related info to this, see our previous post on Google). Many people have seen the TED video, if you have not seen it, it is an absolute must watch (first video below). For those of you who have seen it, see him debut a new series with GapCast #1 – which is not as dramatic as the TED speech, but does demonstrate the power of his delivery and the software. We need more people to think like Hans – how can we get our message across in a different format, in a format that excites people, in a format they will not forget. The TED video is 20 minutes long, but it is worth it. Really great stuff:
