giant internet video site
In addition to ted dot com which many on here already know about, I recently came across fora dot tv, with thousands of talks to view for free. The ted talks generally seem to be of better quality, but fora may hold some gems of its own. My favorites thus far are from Stewart Brand's Long Now Foundation.

Great link openeyes, what a coincidence! I've seen two Long Now speeches now myself!
I was actually just waiting until they posted the media to mention the latest debate we saw: The Historian vs. Futurist on Human Progress with Niall Ferguson & Peter Schwartz. It was on April 28th and was just awesome! Possibly the best lecture I have attended.
The Long Now Foundation - Seminars About Long Term Thinking
I highly recommend seeing these seminars if you are in the Bay area. Niall Ferguson was a brilliant guest speaker too.
Coming up later this month: May 21 - Iqbal Quadir, "Technology Empowers the Poorest"
