An excelent usage of typography for a very creative presentation. Text appears as every word is spoken but done in a way to accent and emphasize and highlight. Watch it 3 or 4 times to really enjoy it. The clip contains adult language, you have been warned.
Yesterday I went to the cinema and watched the Al Gore documentary. After, I had mixed feelings about it, so I had to stop and think, and here are my main conclusions:
If you have political sensibility, you will feel that there is to much of Al Gore's life in the movie. I guess is important to contextualize you in why he's doing this, but it made me feel uncomfortable;
If you have real concerns (and plan to do something about it) about the global warming problem, you should watch the documentary: it has a lot of new data, and it has the ability to clear up your mind;
If you need to do presentations and slide shows, than you must watch this documentary. Al Gore presentation skills are awesome, and the looks of the slides are just smashing. I guess I'm allow to say that Steve Jobs is no more the reference on the subject.
Summarizing, I suggest every one to watch the documentary.
First, Pedro wrote on his blog about the most amazing presentation he has seen this year. Well, knowing Pedro as I know, I had to see it. He is very hard to please, so my curiosity was high.
Guys, you must see this: when someone is able to make a presentation on statistics with the entusiasm of a football game, you just have to love it. It was the first time I saw statistic so live and colorful
After this, I went to read more about this guy project, Gapminder, and I have just found my pro bono project for 2007. I will help in it, that's a fact.
Third, and while in the Gapminder website, I realize the tool is available for anyone on a Google service. Did you know that Google as a tools.google.com service? And that it's running the gapminder tool for you to try and explore? Me neither.
