Post your science video links here. Just science stuff, not the other stuff.

How about a rationalskepticism Wiki where you could put all the complex stuff, basic definition etc. It would be a lot easier to find than discussion threads going into the hundreds.

A lot of the links aren't working - all the Google ones appear to be broken, and quite a few youtube ones have been removed due to violations of terms of service! :(

I will check them all when I have a little time - sorry 'bout that. Most of the links are presumably quite old... :(

You get space on a server, upload the software and then people register and upload/edit pages, similar to Wikipedia. Once the software is running then there is little maintenence involved as the users update the files themselves.

High Anxieties - The Mathematics Of Chaos

Quite interesting video about Chaos-Theory - not a film about the maths at all, but rather about the philosophical implications.

A brilliant place for science documentaries! And the links are from Google videos so you can download the stuff as well!

Thanks for this collection, and thanks to the Mod for wiki-ing the entire set. I noticed that some videos are broken/pulled, but this is to be expected in such a project. There must be some way to make this a community upkeep endeavor. I'll re-post this in our groups.

As much as this is appreciated, it would have been better to check the links first. I just went to click a random few entries, and they were either down due to violation, removed, or not found.

Edit: In fact, there are more links pointing to nothing than there are pointing to something! :grin:

Feel free to edit it while your clicking marking them broken, then others will know.

I deleted most of the broken ones. If you want to try to recover them, they are in the history. I also did a lot of sorting on the collection. I keep my own list of Dawkins vidoes as a Google knol. Feel free to merge them in if you want.
