Gapminder World Getting Bigger

Good news from the Gapminder World Blog:
We have added over 100 new indicators, covering a wide variety of topics in health, economics, inequality, technolgy, geography and more.

Note: the list of indicators are “work in progress”, so the selection of indicators to include or exclude might be revised in the near future. Their names might also be revised and more detailed explanations will be added. Please also note that the coverage (in number of countries and time span) is generally smaller for these new indicators
If you've never played around with the Gapminder World tool it's definitely worth your time.

About time. For being a google acquisition and so awesome, I was hoping it'd have more than it does by now. I'm really aching to get more of an ability to interface with it and produce one's own graphs. I think that option exists now, but I've had trouble doing it.

agreed - I thought it would be developed faster as well, hopefully this is a portent of things to come. Have you been using the Motion Chart tool to produce your own?
