Worldly Citizens Take Notice

offers you some­thing that you’ll most cer­tain­ly want: an on-demand video por­tal that lets you access wher­ev­er, when­ev­er you want the lead­ing-edge ideas of promi­nent news­mak­ers — politi­cians, busi­ness lead­ers, authors, sci­en­tists, artists and more. All of the video comes from well-regard­ed orga­ni­za­tions (C‑SPAN, The Coun­cil on For­eign Rela­tions, The Com­mon­wealth Club of Cal­i­for­nia, The Cato Insti­tute, to name a few). And a quick tour gives you access to some note­wor­thy talks. A few that stood out were those by Jim­my Wales (Founder of Wikipedia), George Pack­er (the New York­er writer who has report­ed exten­sive­ly on Iraq), Karen Arm­strong (the best­selling writer on Islam and oth­er world reli­gions), Isabel Allende (the Chilean writer who authored House of the Spir­its), and Andrew Sul­li­van (a sen­si­ble con­ser­v­a­tive & blog­ger who just pub­lished The Con­ser­v­a­tive Soul: How We Lost It, How to Get It Back). A good com­ple­ment to FORA’s col­lec­tion is the Uni­ver­si­ty Chan­nel, a project orga­nized by Prince­ton that we wrote about not too long ago. Both are worth a good look.
