In honor of Hans Rosling
All of us must die. Hans Rosling, who created a representational language to depict a large variety of data, left the world yesterday. This post is in his honor. If you have never visited the website, there is a lot to explore, and many of the graphs give a clear and sometimes startling view of the world. Respresentation as a source of beauty.
