By Jessica Duff
Whoever said TV makes you stupid never heard of the website Jessica Duff talks about in today's Web Report.
FORA.tv is the place to turn to after spending hours watching TV re-runs or one too many viral videos and realize your brain itself is in danger of becoming infected.
Every day the site's programmers upload clips of scientists, authors, intellectuals, captains of industry and world leaders standing up and laying out what they think they know. Users find, enjoy, and share videos about the people, issues, and ideas changing the world.
FORA.tv gathers the Web's largest collection of unmediated video. These videos are taken from live events, lectures, and debates going on all the time at the world's top universities, think tanks and conferences.
FORA.tv is at the forefront of the online revolution with really interesting videos of interviews, lectures, rants about politics, innovation and ideas from notable world leaders, political pundits, and industry leaders.
The coverage is often light-hearted in tone where appropriate, but hard-hitting in terms of content. The site helps you understand a perspective that might have never occurred to you otherwise.
You can search for videos based on categories like economy, environment and technology. Or you can browse programs by tag, meaning the number of times a subject is mentioned.
FORA.tv gets exclusive pieces and access to press events that actually mean something within these genres.
