Watch this TED talk  first—it’s Tim Berners-Lee on the next stage of development for the Web–from documents to data. (He’s the guy who invented the World Wide Web.)

Foundations and nonprofits have so much valuable data they could share for the betterment of the world–do it! (Don’t be a data-hugger!) Here’s the guy to convince you.

Now watch this one—which was referred to by Tim. This is Hans Rosling, a Swedish global health professor who shows how data can be creatively visualized and change our understanding of the developed and developing world. He’s here to prove the impossible is possible. Wow–I could grow to love data.
