The software developed by Gapminder and used in the presentation has been acquired by Google and is available (at least partly) as Motion Chart at http://code.google.com/apis/visualization/documentation/gadgetgallery.html, Google Visualization API Gadget Gallery. At first glance, it looks like you need to put your data into a Google Docs spreadsheet in order to use the tool.

like that?

Actually, I've done some fast moving graphs with Stata 7 back in 2001
or so. But with the new object-oriented graphics engine, the hope will
instead be in producing a proper movie. Matlab has been exporting
graphics into AVI for some while now, I think. At some point, I strung
a couple dozen Stata-produced eps graphs into an avi using some video
software (Adobe Premiere?). If Stata were producing JPEGs, then I'd
imagine it would be a relatively simple exercise in -file- to produce
an MJPEG video out of these. Just thinking aloud out there; may be it
is only worth a Stata tip for ten users interested rather than a
separate -graph movie- routine.
