Pulitzer Center Update January 30, 2008

Open Culture features Pulitzer Center as "sign of intelligent life at YouTube"


Open Culture, a blog that explores cultural and educational media, recently featured the Pulitzer Center as number seven on its list of 10 "intellectually redeemable" video channels on YouTube. YouTube channels such as BBC Worldwide, UC Berkeley and The Nobel Prize also made Open Culture's list.

Dan Colman, the lead editor of Open Culture and the Director & Associate Dean of Stanford's Continuing Studies Program, posted on Jan. 30:

"It's been a constant lament that YouTube offers its users scant little intellectual content. And that content is itself hard to find. Just visit YouTube's so-called Education Section, and you'll be hard-pressed to find anything actually educational. But the good news is that we're seeing some recent signs of intelligent life at YouTube. The video service hosts an increasing number of intellectually redeemable video collections. And so we figured why not do some heavy lifting and bring a few your way. If YouTube won't make them easy to find, then we will.

Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting: This channel promotes coverage of international affairs, 'focusing on topics that have been under-reported, mis-reported — or not reported at all.' Most of these videos were featured on the public television program 'Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria.'"
