I just learned that the World Bank has made that data for its World Development Indicators open and available to everyone! This is fantastic - apparently you used to have to pay a whole lot of money to access this information, and now it's free! You can even download it as an excel table or in xml format. I've been looking at some of the indicators - they are at the same time, very interesting and very scary. Maybe I'll play around with it and make some graphs of interesting data for you all. Meanwhile, I suggest you visit and see if you find anything interesting!
