Re: SMP Video Collection

A very interesting Naked Science last night featured Stephen Hawkings as he searches for an all encompassing theory of everything:

Not a great link as the videos aren't the whole show but if you can find a better one please post!

If you go to "courses" at the top of the page you get access to a lot more courses with more than 24 vids in total. Sweet links, thanks. Currently watching Game Theory.

This is epic, have seen other free college courses online but these look sweet. Watching Game Theory, Death next.

MIT, Tufts, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, UC Berkeley, ....

MIT has ~1900 courses available.

Re: SMP Video Collection

Watched the first 10 minutes or so from the Intro of Death. Seems very very solid.

If I look at the subtopics of Economics -> Financial markets, it seems horrible though. But I guess that topic is not really relevant to SMP.

I've watched every minute of every class session of the Death course; it is ridiculously good.

"Controversies in Astrophysics" is pretty decent, too.
