One of my favourite people in the world is Hans Rosling. He has a fantastic way of making statistics come alive, and is on a global mission to help us get right data about the world we live in. He is the founder of the extraordinary GapMinder software (still available for free), and his YouTube and TED videos are amongst the most watched of all time.
