Survivor of Technetcast?

Has any other site taken up the slack since Technetcast went into maintenance-only mode? ( )

I miss being able to see and hear presentations and roundtables from various software conferences....

I listen to pretty often.  Doug Kaye gets some great interviews (I wonder why he hasn't interviewed Joel), and he covers some of the interesting conferences.  It's not quite the same as TechNet, since you won't find a five-hour long lecture by Knuth on the relationship between God and CompSci, but what's there is typically very interesting.  The best recording I've listened to recently is a talk with Freeman and George Dyson.

These weren't bad either:

Stanford University Computer Systems Laboratory - EE380 Colloquium Schedule. 
Great range of speakers & topics.  Slightly academic.  Excellent production values.  No Linux, Mac play back.

Microsoft Research - Multi-University Research Lab  d
Decent production values with occasionally bandwidth issues.  Nice range of topics.  Slightly academic.
Lightweight langauges sessions 2002 - 2003.  "Scripting" oriented presentations.  Mixed quality. Divided by session (AM/PM) , not speaker.

Similar to LL? These don't work for me at all.

Math videos.  Hard math. Some good material.
"twenty video lectures by Hal Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman"  SICP related.

  Lectures and events at Harvard.  Rarely CS related.

The existance of that site is just about enough to convince me to get ADSL and a huge download limit.

Either that or get a plane ticket, go on campus and start burning lots of CDs!

I liked the Stanford videos too.  The talk that Wolfram gave there was better than any other one I'd seen from him (he's essentially been giving the same talk since NKoS was published), and the graph-rewriting system that he talks about as a basis for physics is very interesting.  Does anybody know if there's been any work fitting something like it to natural phenomena?
