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.
