FORA.tv is pretty interesting…they are focusing on recording and distributing the audio and video of discussion in forums like C-SPAN, the EFF, the Hoover Instituion, and the Cato Institute (just to name a few). Included are tools to build RSS feeds based on your interests, discussion boards, etc. If I can get a good podcasting feed set up, I might become an avid user; I’m kind of a wonk when it comes to these things.
UPDATE: URLs are a bit of a pain to share; they should make it easier. A couple of example videos: Neil Gaiman at Cody’s Books, Oct 2 2006, and Kevin Phillips discusses American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century at the Commonwealth Club of California on April 18, 2007.
