Maybe I’m hopelessly behind the times, but I just stumbled across this: Authors@Google.

The Authors@Google program brings authors of all stripes to Google for informal talks centering on their recently published books.

Interestingly, the full set of videos is on YouTube and not Google Video. Though I suppose now that Google owns YouTube, it’s six of one half dozen of the other. Makes me wonder why Google Video still exists, actually; why Google is maintaining two video sites.
