Restless

Nick Bostrom explaining in 5 minutes why efforts to improve cognitive performance through science are so important (yes, he's a Swede). It was part of a recent Nature podcast.

UC Berkeley panel debate on coorporations trying to silence scientists whose findings threaten their interests (mainly GM foods and pesticides). Very intresting but a bit long, well worth watching the first 40 minutes of to learn what it can mean to publish a sensitive finding.

An inside look at Google China (googletechtalks)... lot of info, not a word on the censorship.
