Google Tech Talks

Google, a mecca for top notch programmers, attracts many top speakers to give talks on (generally) technical topics. They graciously record these talks and upload them to Google Video. You can get a list of most of them by searching for “engEDU”. Think of these as virtual user group talks, but usually with bigger “name” speakers than a typical local group offers.

Here are just a few that’s I’ve enjoyed recently, there are many more worth watching.

Seth Godin (marketing guru)
