This video will change your life. And not just a small part of your life; it will change how you see South Africa; it will change how you see ‘developing countries’; and it will change how you see America.
Watch how Hans Rosling, professor at International Health at Karolinska Institutet and the director of Gapminder Foundation, talk about how 1) ordinary people rarely talk about government data and 2) how ‘developing countries’ have made far bigger advances than we would like to give them credit for.
There is something you need to know about me: I’m always trying to find new blogs to add to my Google Reader and Foxmarks accounts. I cleaned up my bookmarks last week and got rid of many meh blogs and websites. I even cleaned up my del.icio.us account, which I have not used for more than two years.
I call this the new phase of The Royal Joyfulness. This is me wanting to know more, be a better human and, well, know more about everything.
So I’ve been busy reading up on SEO — I work at Shake Interactive, bru — and marketing. This is besides the normal reading up on writing and new media. I signed up for a Twitter account in August? and even got myself a FriendFeed account last night. It was an awesome night of interwebbing.
Be nice and send me some awesome links to blogs and stuff that you like. I promise I’ll get excited and spend the entire evening reading an awesome new blog.
Things I am interested in:
- Search engine optimisation
- Personal development
- Career development
