Fantastic presentation on Asia's rise, how and when

Sometimes I read the Presentation Zen blog because I enjoy learning about how to make presentations more interesting and effective.  This morning I ran across a posting on the blog that mentions a guy named Hans Rosling; the posting said he's great at presenting statistics, which happens to be something I need to do for a talk of my own soon.

So, I clicked on the link to this talk he presented last month at the TEDIndia conference; the talk is entitled "Asia's rise -- how and when."  The goal of his talk is to predict when India and China's wealth and life expectancies will overtake the current leaders (the US and UK).

Check it out; it's 15 minutes long and I found the talk completely interesting the whole 15 minutes.  His use of visuals is excellent, and he's got a great speaking style as well, full of energy but not hype.

If you've got favorite examples of good slide presentations or live talks, share the links by commenting on this post.  I'm always on the lookout for excellence and I'd love to watch, listen to, or read talks with a high signal-to-noise ratio (i.e., high-quality information, effective presentation techniques).
