I think the first TED talk by Hans Rosling (@hansrosling) got a lot of media attention and made people sit up and appreciate the power of 'narrative visualization'. He almost make it look like a sport with him serving as the role of a commentator. The title on TED's website for the talk is ā€œthe best stats you've ever seenā€œ. I am not sure about that, but it is a very entertaining talk.

Fernanda Viegas and Martin Wattenberg (@wattenberg) (previously at IBM Research) have brought visualization to the masses in through IBM Many Eyes. They have recently started a new venture called FlowingMedia. Here are some links to their talks:
