video for the masses

Everyone knows about YouTube. That’s a basic assumption. I want to talk about online videos. First off I prefer videos I can learn from. Now, videos of funny things are, well they are funny. But most of the time I enjoy watching a video I’ll learn something new from.

Which leads me to YouTube. Within the deep fortress of YouTube there is a series of videos that I find very interesting. It’s called @Google. From their YouTube account, “@Google events–such as the Authors@Google and Women@Google series–featuring everyone from newsmakers to bestselling authors.” Google in their wisdom (and infinite budget) brings in well known people to talk to their employees. They bring in all types of people. My favorite version is Authors@Google.

My fab four.

Chris Anderson

Michael Bloomberg

Marci Alboher & Tim Ferriss

Joseph Stiglitz

Ironically I had the idea to search for “authors” at YouTube after watching a Seth Godin video of him speaking at Google, although the video is on Google Video.

So that brought me to the wealth of information on YouTube. I’ve got that feeling I’m late to the party, but better late then never.

Also, a video on the Stanford Design Thinking Process

So those are the gems I’ve found. What are yours?
