I watch lots of things on YouTube as there is much good content, and I've come across this channel called "Technology Connections."  Sounds pretty boring, but in fact, its really interesting, especially if you like technology history. 


If you were around during the 80' and 90's there was just so much new technology that appeared, things like DVDs, CDs, video games, VCRs, you name it. This channel talks about all the crazy aspects of these technologies coming to be. Its paty history, and some technical. If you haven't checked it out, it might be worth it.

Been watching that guy for a long time.  Really like his stuff.  He has a good variety of subjects. For example, in one he discusses how the "rising ceiling" works at Disney's Haunted Mansion.


I'm starting to watch this kind of programming more instead of regular TV.


Some of my other favorite (tech) YT channels are:

  - EEVBlog - popular Aussie guy

  - bigclivedotcom - popular Scottish guy

  - techmoan - mostly (retro) A/V stuff

  - engineerguy - various subjects from an University of Illinois

  - techIngredients - various

  - blackpenredpen - mathematics

  - 3blue1brown - mathematics

  - computerphile/numberphile - computing/mathematics

  - the8bitguy - retro PCs/games

  - learnEngineering - kinda' like the TV show  How Things Work

  - Fran Blanch - various hardware topics (developed a popular guitar effects device in the 80s)

  - Jeri Ellsworth - an amazingly smart person that is mostly self-taught


I watch lots of other shows on other various topics including woodworking, etc.
