London School of Economics - Innovation Web Site

One interesting e-mail I receive each Friday is from the Scout Report. The Scout Report summarizes several websites, two new applications and a news story each week. Here's a description and link I found particularly intersting:

LSE Information Systems and Innovation Group Video Archive

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has hundreds of different research units, and the Information Systems and Innovations Group recently joined with other departments to form the new Department of Management. Both academic units have sponsored a wide range of guest speakers and scholars over the years, and this website lets interested parties watch these talks at their leisure. All told, there are over twenty five talks currently available, and they include Ricky Burdett's talk on "Social Aspects of Urban Form", Leopoldina Fortunati's "Discussing the Meaning of the Mobile Phone", and Danny Quah's "Digital Goods and New Economy". Visitors can also chime in with their two cents via the weblog discussion thread that resides under each video.
