TED Talk: David McCandless from Information is Beautiful

My last post was from the Information is Beautiful website that I’ve used in past. Well coincidentally, David McCandless did a TED talk and his sentiments about the value of data are right on par with my thoughts on it. I recommend watching the video below. You’ll see some interesting stats about fear, military size, and volcanoes.

Eventually Globalization Comes Back to Us

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
