The very short TED talk by internet pioneer Tim Berners-Lee shows a few of the interesting results where open data gets mashed up in various compelling data visualizations. The talk includes many examples the avid infosthetics reader should already know, including Where Does my Money Go?, California Stimulus Map, data.gov.uk Newspaper and OpenStreetMap Edits.

Other projects, not blogged about before on this site, include Making Water a Matter of Race [time.com], Afghanistan Election Data [afghanistanelectiondata.org] and Haiti OpenStreetMap Edits [itoworld.blogspot.com].

Watch the movie below.

I love that Obama got Tufte on board, but Tim Berners-Lee is where it's at. The UK did right to snag him.
