Why you should listen
Always with the end consumer at heart, Anna Rosling Rönnlund spends her days making sure that Gapminder -- a foundation she co-founded with Hans and Ola Rosling to promote a fact-based Worldview that everyone can understand -- provides the world with useful and meaningful data about the world. Passionate about the visual side of data, she invented the project Dollar Street, where she uses photos as data to show how people really live on different income levels, beyond country stereotypes. Dollar Street explores a lot of items in homes like, for instance, how people brush their teeth.
