It was only a matter of time before the mind-changing talk of Hans Rosling would find its way to the television medium.

A reincarnation of this talk will be part of “The Joy of Stats“, a new television documentary that soon will appear at BBC.

This documentary will explore various forms of data gathering and statistical analysis, such as a new application that mashes police department data with the city’s street map to show what crime is being reported street by street, house by house, in near real-time; and Google’s current efforts at the machine translation project.

Graph Your Inbox – The new Xobni?

When I use to use Microsoft Outlook for Email, I couldn’t live without the Xobni (Inbox spelt backwards).

At Datarati, we use Google Apps for Email so this new Chrome extention really got my attention.

Graph Your Inbox is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to graph Gmail activity over time. You can use it to visualise your communication with friends, your Facebook activity, when you purchased items on Amazon or how often you use certain words or phrases.

They provide the same search functionality used by Gmail, but instead of a list of messages they show you a graph of your email trends over time.
