No mod points today, so just posting to say I appreciated your post. It's good to see things like this with more regularity these days (though still not nearly enough).
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
While the summary makes it sound like this is some breakthrough idea, there are several similar sites out there:

Twitter makes money?
Not sure if you get it where you live, but I've found the National Geographic channel has been pretty good lately.
I'm using a similar piece of software to learn German. Anki is actively worked on and regularly updated by the author. You can even write your own plug-ins for it in Python, I believe.
Maybe you should start wearing parachute pants.
