The Aspen Institute sponsors many dozens of events every year, and its website yields an abundance of video. On this site, the Institute brings together recorded events, making it a great place to wander around if you have a few spare moments. There is always a featured video front and center on the homepage, and the other sections on the site include Events in Aspen, Aspen Policy Programs, and Book Talks. Folks with a penchant for the printed word should look over the Book Talks area for conversations with Thomas Frank, Professor David Agus, and Walter Isaacson speaking about his recent biography of Steve Jobs. The "Events in Aspen" area is a delight, and it include dozens of recorded events, including "Philanthropic Transparency: How Public Should Private Philanthropy Be?" and "Is Social Media Sparking Civic Engagement?" Finally, one video that shouldn't be missed is Madeleine Albright's "A Personal Story of Remembrance and War."
