So I’m a big fan of gaming – which some might argue is just entertainment-based data visualization.

Trundling through the interwebs, I came across Hans Rosling’s talk on applying data viz concepts to epidemiology. Stick with it to see how many of our preconceived notions about disease in ‘developing nations’ is in fact a load of whooey. That’s a clinical term. Not.
