To create global real time data visualisation screens in every city round the world & on also the web.

With the work of Hans Rosling and data visualisers round the world at research centres we are beginning to see flows of people, information and power in completely new ways. We can use these powerful visualisation techniques to re- see our world.

    Mar 19 2011: I've watched Rosling's various videos a number of times, but what touches me most deeply are the stories behind the data he presents. I think of the young man who generated electricity in a village in Africa from a windmill he fabricated with old car parts...that story told me more about what's happening in Africa than Rosling's data presentations. I think about the schools that Mortenson has helped build in Afghanistan and Pakistan (read Three Cups of Tea) and those stories touch me deeply.
