Mises has tons of materials offered for free online.  It's bloody fantastic.  I could kiss you.  BUT

downloading it is not very "user friendly".   I like having my computer play Mises Lectures all day, but going to each article or book or lecture and downloading them individually is a pain to be honest.  

Could it be possible to put all the media and the like into a few zip files we can download all at once?  Maybe use torrents?   Honestly, I never use torrents, but this seems like a good reason to try it out.

Good to see you here American Swan. Do me a favor, bump that education quotes thread for me. wink

Check out Itunes as well... easily downloads and listening! (type Mises into itunes store)

I'm not particularly fond of the media section layout.  It's not very intuitive to browse through, and silverlight makes me sad face.

I would like to see more media up on YouTube.  I use that constantly, because it is easy to embed YouTube on forums and blogs, making it fantastic for sharing LvMI productions with the world.

I don't use iTunes, but I imagine the LvMI presence there is awesome as well.

Pretty frustrating though.. I eventually found - after a long search and wait - the recent Supporters Summit audio... that had Rogers and other guys talks...

They are in recent uploads... Rogers, Higgs - Government's Response to the Crisis: A Fantastic Success, for Government, etc.

And the rest of them on Oct 9. But still no easy download on Itunes, or at least in its own folder.. under "Supporters Summits" !

I got a sad face when the "Recent Uploads" section was change so that only a few media files showed, instead having a complete chronology of a media files.

Idea: Someone host all the media files a on separate server (or YouTube) and create a better user interface on new website.

That's not a bad idea, but there are costs to media hosting.

If it's a good interface, I'd probably pay for the service.
