Hi Product Hunt! I'm the co-creator. We built this last weekend as a "scratch my itch" type project. Can't believe it's already on product hunt.

@cglace nice work, some great content on here. I really like the live tab- What kind of features are you planning on having once this section goes live?

A new toy. :) There are a bunch of great talks submitted already and there's an upcoming tab, so if you have a webinar coming up, let people know. Have fun.

@adams472 I like it so far - it's simple and uncluttered, and I'm a fan of all curations so... Gosh, I should probably have some kind of constructive criticism, I feel bad about not having any, but I don't want to make stuff up so... put me out of my misery? :D Thumbs up, Adam.

@v4violetta No worries! What do you think about the idea of streaming live presentations on the site that would include Q&A? Would you ever attend those?

@adams472 Maybe... you mean like an AMA? That could be fun. But to be honest, even though the live-streaming trend is growing, I am mellowing on it because I've had an overload. :/

@robertwilliger Just count it as a professional education day :-) What else would you like to see from the app? Would you be interested in watching live presentations?

@adams472 Adam- I like the justification. As far as what I would like to see would be tags or categories so if I am looking on a specific topic. Also, a calendar view for upcoming would be nice. I am mixed on live webinars, I find it challenging to watch them frequently due to schedules or other issues. I usually watch live if there is Q&A I want to participate in or if there will not be a recording and the topic is of major interest. In most situations, I sign up for a webinar and know I will catch it on the recording. If you are looking to promote more of the live webinars, I think it is important to have a value add, such as either special Q&A, a copy of slides, etc... to encourage people to attend when it is happening.

@robertwilliger Oh that is really good feedback. Tags seem to be at the top of everyone's list :-) I also love the idea of the calendar view. I would also use that. Good point on the live webinars. How often would you say you attend a live webinar? Thanks!

Love it, been dying for a way to find talks. A few features to take it from MVP: random if i'm not feeling motivated, save for later or pinning if I can't finish, email or recommend to friend. Can't wait to get lost in some good videos! Thanks!

Great work Adam and Chris! I'd love the ability to more immersed in the application. Some type of tag filtering or categorization would be a great way to traverse through related videos, as well as to find and bookmark upcoming presentations.

@tdstein Thanks! Great ideas. Tags are at the top of the list, which we might also roll into the idea of "channels." Love the idea of bookmarks, too.
