Any video’s that may be viewed outside the US?
I’m in the US and can’t see it. :/
For some reason, I got thrown in to redirect loop when I clicked the link. The Hulu link seems fine though (for US viewers): http://www.hulu.com/watch/332382/the-colbert-report-the-word-surrender-to-a-buyer-power
The video worked for me (I’m in the UK) Really funny video and really informative. I have recently got tracking on my site and the things you can do are incredible. I must admit I am very much an amateur as i’m still getting to grips with analytics. I am definitely going to seek the help of a Google analytics consultant until I know for sure what i’m doing. Predictive analytics is amazing and really clever. I think it is something that I will definitely look into within my company.

It’s always tough to pick my favorite visualization projects. Nevertheless, I gave it a go.
There are many ways to die. Cancer. Infection. Mental. External. This is how different groups of people died over the past 10 years, visualized by age.
Before you dive into the advanced stuff – like just about everything in your life – you have to learn the fundamentals before you know when you can break the rules.
