Debunking third-world myths
I’ve been a bit of a slacker blogger lately, but not without good reason. One of several things taking up my time is Tusubira – the non-profit organization that I’ve been working with for a while now, and the related trip to Uganda that I’ll be taking at the end of this summer.
Why do I bring this up? Well, fellow MS blogger Sanaz Ahari made a post earlier this month linking to a video I’d not seen before, with some incredibly interesting data about the distribution of wealth, health, and technology over the last 30 or so years between and within countries from all around the world. It’s not the shortest video ever, and if you’re used to watching 30 second news blurbs you might not get much out of this as it’s a bit longer than your average NBC world news segment. But the data presented is so compelling, and the presentation so engaging, that I had to share it.
