If you enjoy our content, you’ll likely also enjoy the treasure trove that is AcademicEarth.org, a global archive of 1500 video lectures from Ivy League universities (including Harvard, Yale, MIT, etc.).

The site launched in March, 2009, and they see about 400,000 visitors per month from every corner of the globe.
The ECorner videos have proved extremely popular, and comprise nearly all of the content on the site’s entrepreneurship channel. According to AcademicEarth’s figures, the most popular videos in this category include:
As Facebook rounds the bend on 250 million users, this fantastic discussion between Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the company, and one of his early investors, Jim Breyer of Accel Partners, offers an amazing time capsule in the social networking giant’s history.
This 2005 talk catches Zuckerberg shortly after the 18-month-old company’s party commemorating five million users. Many are still posting their cell phone numbers to their profile, are users are segregated by school. Zuckerberg speaks in depth about initial ideas in product development, team dynamics and company culture, and generating early revenue rounds, among other topics.
One audience member asks, “How does Facebook make money?”
One thing that’s changed little since Facebook’s early days is its amazing viral magnetism: From its inception, the website draws 93 percent of its users back at least once a month, yielding 5.5 billion page views. At the time of this recording, the website is adding 20,000 new users daily.
In this remarkable video of three-time ETL speaker Jeff Hawkins recorded in 2002 – the age of the Treo and the very first iPod – Hawkins proves to be ahead of his time when it comes to acknowledging the proliferation and power of mobile computing.
He tells the Stanford audience, “You’re going to have a T1 line in your pocket, “ which literally sparks laughter in the crowd. Shortly thereafter he pulls his brick-thick mobile phone from his pocket to demonstrate the point.
Still, his soothsaying about the impact of handheld computing foretold the millions of iPhone’s and other handhelds experiencing broad market acceptance today. Speaking to his own Palm Pilot invention, he remarks that they made it an accessory to the PC but, he predicted, “I think this is going to be flipped around. In the future, the thing in your pocket is going to be the center of the universe. And the big screen and the keyboard will become an accessory to it.”
Hawkins also spoke at ETL in 2005 and again in 2009.
