Check it out: ‘Big think’

A new interactive video sharing site for activism and “ideas,” Big Think (HT), including entries from experts like Niall Ferguson, Jagdish Bhagwati, Paul Krugman, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali (along with the requisite spate of politicians).

Here, for instance, is Richard Cizik, vice president of Govermental Affairs at the National Association of Evangelicals, answering the question, “How should the Bible be interpreted?”

Here’s a sample: “Your argument is not with me. Your argument is with God.” Cizik’s video is probably sixty seconds too long. But hey, the site is only in “beta.”
