World Health Statistics, but cool!
Frankwatching pointed me to this great presentation at this years Ted conference by professor Hans Rosling of the Karolinska instute in Sweden. He gives a great talk on the misinterpretation of the third world, but the best thing is: He has cool graphics. He for instance shows how internet disseminated in the world, through letting balloons go up on a scale and you can see the great differences. Have a look at his presentation here, or play with the data online at Google.
He also has an organisation around it: http://www.gapminder.org
This is also very much a pointer, why governments should open up statistical data.
