Smart Links

Here are a few good finds that we’ve recent­ly stum­bled upon:

  • 60 Min­utes Streamed on Yahoo: A nice addi­tion
    to Yahoo’s line­up, but it makes you real­ize how far behind Yahoo has
    fall­en in the web video space, and this was amaz­ing­ly the one area that Yahoo had decid­ed to
    focus on while it let Google slip away with the search space. It’s rather stun­ning that Yahoo’s CEO, Ter­ry Semel, remains in his job. By the way, you can also get 60 Min­utes seg­ments on iTunes. (iTunesFeed)
  • Load­ing Clips from YouTube and Google Video onto your Ipod: We talk a lot around here about pod­casts and web video. The links below will make it so that you can load not only pod­casts, but also video from YouTube and Google Video, onto your iPod. It’s a great way to cen­tral­ize things. (Also this arti­cle from the always help­ful Life­hack­er talks some more about this gen­er­al issue.)
  • Medi­aShift’s Pod­cast Guide: This blog affil­i­at­ed with PBS recent­ly issued a primer on pod­cast­ing. It cov­ers the fol­low­ing items: What are Pod­casts? What is the His­to­ry of Pod­cast­ing? Where to Find Pod­casts? (Why they did­n’t include Open Cul­ture’s pod­cast library here, I don’t know.) How to Become a Pod­cast­er? How to Make Mon­ey with Pod­casts?
  • Psy­chol­o­gy Pod­cast Col­lec­tion: A list of upwards to 20 pod­casts deal­ing with var­i­ous aspects of psy­chol­o­gy.
  • Mozart’s Life and Music: A free lec­ture from The Teach­ing Com­pa­ny.
  • Self Made Schol­ar: It’s a lit­tle uneven, but there are some good edu­ca­tion­al resources in the mix.

    I think some­thing may be miss­ing in that last link ;)

  • DH C says:

    Thanks for the heads up. I fixed it up.

  • Will says:

    Thanks for the post — as usu­al its bril­liant, although the self made schol­ar site isn’t half as good as this (not to be too syco­phan­tic!)

    Also, thanks for hunt­ing out that mozart pod­cast. There’s a cou­ple of oth­er spe­cial ones like that hid­den away on the site, if you don’t already know about them.

  • DH C says:

    Will, if you hap­pen to know how I could find these oth­er hid­den Teach­ing Com­pa­ny lec­tures, could you please let me know? I’d real­ly appre­ci­ate it, and thanks for the kind words!
