Knowledge Compression and the Beauty of Data

I stumbled onto this fantastic Ted Talk given by “data detective” David McCandless via a Tweet on the @BMJ_latest account:

If you are like me and like crunching numbers or at least, trying to pry out hidden information from datasets, then I am sure you shall like this talk as much as I did. So, without much further ado, let me embed the fantastic talk. Best 18 minutes I have spent this week.
