Videos to waste your time

With the proliferation of YouTube and Google Video, I've been watching a lot of videos lately. I just thought it would be neat to link some videos that have caught my attention. Of course, I'm not going to link Koffee with Karan episodes [though I do watch them :)].

World on Fire
Music video by Sarah McLachlan ~ 4:23 mins
A crash course on global inequalities. I would weep if I could.

One.org Ad
Advertisement for one.org ~ 1:00 min
Make poverty history advertisement from Live 8 for one.org.

Rx for Survival
A preview video of the Rx for Survival Series on PBS ~ 7 :01 min
A stunning and powerful series on our medical heroes. More details on the homepage here.

Introducing String Theory
A series of videos on NOVA ~ each video is around 6-7 min
The host is Brian Greene, a physicist from Columbia. You will see interviews with some of the most significant brains of our times along the way [mostly from the US]. String theory is trying to explain how the universe works...pretty straightforward :)

  • Hi Scribblez, Karan's episodes seem to be fun. I've just started watching them. Puts our actors in a whole new light :)

    Thanks for the heads up about videodownloader.net Karthik, don't think I've come across it earlier. Will check out for sure.

    Anoop and Maya, this pic is one of my favs from digitalblasphemy.com. I think its called haiku. I believe all images there are created digitally, some really awesome stuff there.

  • Ram - lol, they are awesome videos, but they are not really educational or something. All TP stuff [I mean, seriously, how many people are going to be turned on by String Theory? :)]

    Welcome here, "innoru" Ram!

  • Hi Ram,

    Have not been able to download videos at my office. :-( So can`t really comment about the videos. Hope I get to see them soon though.. ( Have been trying for quite some time. )

    It`s been a long time, Ram.. where are you ?

    Have Fun, Take Care and God Bless.

    Regards,
    Srijith.

  • Hi Ponnarasi, thanks. Sorry, but I've already done that tag :). You can give me another one though...

    Hey Srijith, I'm working in San Diego over the summer. So just been busy with moving here, and trying to find a place to live for 3 months and so on. Will be back on schedule pretty soon. I see you've been thinking deep thoughts lately ;)
