movie recommendation & other brainfood media

I really liked the movie “everything is illuminated” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0404030/).

It made me re-think what I had seen lately in a lecture stream "The Future of Utopia in History: Literary and Cultural Modernism" Hayden White, Bonsall Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University

Real Video

(39:44)

And while I am at it, I have been watching some pretty neat videos of ‘premium people’ explaining what they are doing:

University of Berkley has archived some really cool stuff (mostly Audio)

http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/audiofiles.html


Original lectures by Michele Foucault, Aldous Huxley, Noam Comsky, Umberto Eco, Bill Clinton, Malcom X


MIT World is a free and open site that provides on-demand video of significant public events at MIT.

http://mitworld.mit.edu/

They really have a lot of good video – I especially recommend e.g.:

Democratizing Innovation, Eric von Hippel

and The World is Flat Friedman Foreign Affairs Columnist,The New York Times http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/266/

Princeton University Streaming Media http://www.princeton.edu/WebMedia/lectures/

I saw Hillary and I have to say the potential first female American president did leave quite a good impression

Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. Senator (D-NY): "Challenges for U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East"

Closer To Truth

A talkshow with rather interesting guests and topic (e.g. What's Creativity and Who's Creative?, New Communities for the New Millennium?, or Will the Internet Change Humanity?)

In case you prefer to record the real-media streams (save to your harddrive) in order to watch them whenever you want I recommend StreamboxVcrSuite2 (http://www.pctip.ch/library/downloads/24171/1/StreamboxVcrSuite2.exe)

Enjoy
