It's a beautiful example of kinetic type or motion graphics. Some comments.
- It is made with software available to everyone, the source files are here.
- There are some interesting visualization concepts, for example pie chart overlays abour 2:30 minutes into the video (thank you Steven Levy for pointing this out)
- Quotes are great to get one number across. Still I believe that comparing two numbers is not very powerful in 2 consecutive quotes. Rather the good old bar chart does a better job.
- The real artistic power in this presentation is the subtle use of informal cartoon drawing techniques, I style that I like.
