Statistics are cool

Posted by Brad Greene on June 19, 2011

I just added a link (actually put it back in) to last year’s coolest documentary for data geeks. Hans Rosling’s “Joy of Stats“. It is an entertaining 1 hour on a topic that most people would never dream could be even remotely entertaining. The guy is just plain interesting to listen to. Business Intelligence has a lot to do with stats and I really like the way Rosling makes his point with visually effective presentations. Imagine getting the opportunity to build a dashboard with some of the techniques he uses!

As always my source for this kind of cool stuff is www.flowingdata.com. Check it out if you have not done so. Always something fun to see popping up there weekly.
