Big Think -- Interesting Conversations

There's an interesting website called Big Think that's sort of a forum for some interesting conversations on a host of issues ranging in everything from globalization to religion to art economics. They have short videos posted from experts ranging from David McCullough on John Adams to Harvey Mansfield on the American political system to Jim Lehrer on the media today to Reza Aslan on the "clash of civilizations".

It's the type of site you can browse around in and find some really interesting things for both personal edification as well as for possible use in the classroom. Take a look at this posting on David McCullough's views on "Adams Family Values".
