Video Mind

Over the last two weeks I have been trawling the videosphere on the net. I am diving into Web 2.0 for a short course I am a leader for in HUMlab. Over that time I found some great videos that are streamed online. The other thing is that my selection of what is "good" is obviously a reflection of my own taste. A sign post as to who "I" am and this motivated me to post them here (catagorized thematically, some contain adult themes and images):
