Something for this list

Debunking third-world myths with the best stats you've ever seen

New insights on poverty and life around the world
  
http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/hans_rosling_reveals_new_insights_on_poverty.html

There are three reasons for posting this message: 1) to challenge 
Mathematica 7 gurus to
produce an equivalent tool (look at the videos) for the dynamic display 
of data, 2) a request to include
these poverty data in Mathematics WWW data sets (if they are not yet 
there), and 3) to
make the mathgroup list aware of the TED talks site.
