Random videos worth watching (non climbing)

Postby Not » Tue Dec 13, 2011 4:47 pm

I created a thread for climbing videos but I just realised I watch many many videos that are totally worth watching - either because the contain cool ideas (think TED talks) or because they are beautiful.

Perhaps folk would like to share videos that are worth watching?

I'll start with two:

1) A heavy one that should make you think.


2) One that is just mega pretty.

Justin: is it possible to make an embed vimeo option similar to the youtube one?

I think Nic's videos (which are totally awesome btw) should likely be moved to the climbing video thread...
