Reddit and TED to interview Hans Rosling. Submit your questions!


Such a success was the first ever Reddit-and-TED joint interview — featuring Sir Ken Robinson — that we and our partner Reddit have decided to expand it into a semi-regular feature.

This week, enduring TED favorite Hans Rosling (watch all his talks) will answer your questions.

Submit your questions in the Reddit thread now >>

We’ll ask Hans the top 10 questions as of 5pm Pacific on Thursday, September 3rd.

Expect to see Hans’ answers here on the TED Blog early in the following week.

As a doctor and researcher, Hans identified a new paralytic disease induced by hunger in rural Africa. Now the global health professor is looking at the bigger picture, increasing our understanding of social and economic development with the remarkable trend-revealing software he created.
