Aviary fora-tv Picture 1Thanks to the previously mentioned TIME’s 50 Best Websites 2009 comes another great video site: FORA.tv.

And here’s what they are about:

FORA.tv helps intelligent, engaged audiences get smart. Our users find, enjoy, and share videos about the people, issues, and ideas changing the world. We gather the web’s largest collection of unmediated video drawn from live events, lectures, and debates going on all the time at the world’s top universities, think tanks and conferences. We present this provocative, big-idea content for anyone to watch, interact with, and share –when, where, and how they want.

This is not an educational website such as the previously mentioned Academic Earth, but it is educational in the sense that the presenters are top class leaders in their fields and the videos are designed to make you think about yourself, your surroundings and the people you interact with everyday.

These days I welcome speakers and talks that broaden my mind a bit and make me go “oh I never thought about it like that” and the FORA.tv videos do this in an engaging way!
