Pardon me while I fall completely in love with PBS Idea Channel.

So I'm doing research on Minecraft in education, and of course a video comes to my attention from the people out there in the Interwebz.  And that led me to an earlier video by the same crew.  And I am hooked.

First video, about how things like Minecraft and Makerbot (3-D printing) may be helping to create the Post-Scarcity Economy, which heretofore has primarily been theoretical:

And then the video that led me to that gem,  Is Minecraft the Ultimate Educational Tool?

Of course, I'm excited about the content of these, and I love the continuous stream of humor and pop culture references.  But more than anything, I really just dig the format.
