Minding the Gap

I happened upon a site called Gap Minder. This site blew me away in terms of visual representations of the world that we are living.  It offers fantastic visualisations in graphical format.  The graphs aggregate population demographics on a global basis and allows the users to follow their own countries progression (or regression) over a…
