Daily Geek

I found a new website today (courtesy of "Today on the Interwebs") -- it's called "Academic Earth." You can find it at www.AcademicEarth.org.

Why is this worthy of the Daily Geek? (Yes, this is a new posting category on my blog, starting today. It probably won't be daily, but so be it.) Because it's an awesome website where you can watch lectures from the world's top scholars on a bunch of topics.

As a perpetual student who's sorely missing school (yeah I know... I said it was called the Daily Geek didn't I?), this is super cool to me.

There are lectures in 17 different subjects, and the lecture topics range from "The World is Flat 3.0" with Thomas Friedman to "The American Novel since 1945" with Amy Hungerford from Yale, to "Garage Technology Ventures" with Guy Kawasaki.

And the best part: it's free. Gotta love technology!
