Learn Something New Every Day

Learn Channel by messenger

This channel is your Sift source for private study.

You'll find videos produced to teach you something. There are formal lectures, educational content from Smarter Every Day, Sixty Symbols and the like, and lots of other things to get your brain cells buzzing.

What you will not find here:
- anything about education as a topic, or videos which happen to be made in classrooms, on campuses etc., or people talking to/about students/teachers/teaching => (*education)
- normal news broadcasts, exposé journalism, biographical interviews, personal experience stories => (*news, *talks)
- crazy, interesting, neat things that were caught on video => (*wtf, *comedy)
- stupid people "learning the hard way" => (*EIA, *fail, *fear)

Allow posting of video from standard URL (not embed code)

I just noticed that the VideoSift Bookmarklet allows you to automagically create a posting from some of the popular video sites (YouTube, Vimeo, College Humor, Funny or Die, Daily Motion) and I wonder why is this same functionality not added to the standard submission page?

I wouldn't mind if it was an undocumented feature, have the validate button see if its a standard URL then check if its a supported site and form the embed just like the bookmarlet does.

This is VideoSift bookmarklet page http://videosift.com/bookmarklet/install
