Big Think: A YouTube for Ideas

YouTube is a great place for people to just post whatever content they have from the seemingly mindless, to the outrageously bizarre, to pure genius. YouTube is the new opiate of the masses but what happens when you mix YouTube-like user generated content with intellectuals from politics, to law to business, much like TED? What if you had a question like Are Leaders Born or Made? You get a YouTube for Ideas and the New York Times has a great article on how an Ex-Harvard President met a former student and when their intellectual sparks flew, out came this new site called, BigThink.
