View at Big Think [Video] via Lifehacker by Jason Fitzpatrick on

If You Tube had an overly-intellectual kid brother who preferred Noam
Chomsky to Naruto, that brother would be Big Think. Big Think is a web
site built around interviews with prominent scientific and political
figures about a broad range of topics.

[Big Think's] shorts are studio-shot, first-person interviews. Each
clip features the interviewee answering a single question or waxing on
a single topic: for example, UCLA law professor Kal Raustiala
explaining his "piracy paradox," the puzzle that intellectual property
protection may be inhibiting creative progress in culture and industry.
Big Think can be searched by keyword or browsed by the various topics
such as Identify, Truth & Wisdom, and more concrete topics like History
or Science & Technology. The clips are well lit, professionally done,
and full of interesting ideas and viewpoints you may not have come
across otherwise. For more mind-expanding video goodness check out TED
Talks, the free public archive of speakers from the Technology,
Entertainment, and Design Conference.
