Stanford content (free) on iTunes

Stanford just put up a bunch of faculty lectures, discussions, interviews, and student-created music up on iTunes. There's supposedly some video up too, though I haven't found that yet. Free as in beer. Content to expand in the coming months.

Although select lectures will be restricted to tuition-paying students, I think this is really cool. It's nice to see land-grant universities such as Stanford actively and boldly contributing to the public good.

I'm currently listening to "Stress and Coping: What Baboons Can Teach Us" by Robert Sapolsky. I can't say that I agree with all of it, but it's interesting.

...get to this content if you don't have iTunes? Is there any way to do it?

Unfortunately, if you don't have iTunes, you can't get the content.

iTunes is free, and as far as I know, it works under WINE. If you want to avoid iTunes, though, you're pretty much out of luck (especially as the iTunes 6 format hasn't been de-DRMed yet).

This is one of the great movements to the further liberation of knowledge.
