As a tech writer, I have no choice but to direct all my love to the best of resources that cover everything related to technology. Sometimes when I don’t feel like reading, I switch on the browser and catch the best of technology in videos 10 Technology YouTube Channels You Can't Miss Read More . There are some pretty good YouTube channels on technology there in that last link. But that’s not the complete barrel. Here are ten more technology video websites if you like to catch the latest that’s happening in the world of bits and bytes. 

Internet Archive

Okay, well this video resource does not cover the latest. In fact it doesn’t even cover the recent past because the very term is a misnomer in an industry where yesterday is history. The Internet Archive is after all about history of all that has transpired on the Internet. The Computers & Technology page is a collection of television programs, documentaries, and webcasts on the said subject. The video grabs are assembled into 41 sub-collections with many videos within them. If you are interested in geek history, this is a very nice place to come and watch.

Wall Street Journal Live

WSJ has a video page dedicated to life & culture, business, and technology among other things. The videos cover important tech events and whatever else that’s breaking around the tech world. The videos are constantly refreshed, and only the latest ones are displayed on the main page. To catch them as they happen, it would be better to subscribe to the site’s feed.


Wired Video

technology video sites does not need an introduction. If you have any interest in technology (though it’s not only about that), then the magazine or the website should feature on your reading list. Alternatively, you can catch the video series’. Listen to Chris Baker’s rants on Angry Nerd or go into the gaming industry on Game|Life. The Wired Video series are a lot about pop culture as well along with the musings on technology.

TechCrunch TV

TechCrunch TV has one of the more comprehensive technology video websites on the web. As you can make out from the screen above, videos cover the entire gamut of the industry. Founder Stories and TC Cribs take you behind the scenes, while TCTV News and CrunchWeek keep you abreast of the latest news. My personal favorite is Speaking Of, which is a series of one on ones with achievers and their process.


SlashGear TV

From technology demonstrations to product reviews, SlashGear TV takes on the latest in geek gadgetry. The focus is on consumer technology. If you are looking to buy the latest piece of hardware, check out the site because they just might have a video that starts with the unboxing and then goes more hands-on with a walkthrough.

Fora TV [No Longer Available]

Fora TV has a mix of free and pay-per-view videos. The site has a distinct identity of its own because it focusses on covering conferences and events around specific subjects; technology being one of the main interest areas. The site explains that the videos on come from a diverse list of partners, including the world’s leading conferences, media companies, universities, think tanks, institutes and other major centers of thought and discourse. You can watch the free content and highlights of the pay-per-view content without a registration.

Leo Laporte is a radio talk show host with a rich background in technology. TWiT is an acronym for This Week in Tech, and the site is the live streaming video version of the original podcast show. The show features 30 hours of original programming each week. The show covers commentary on the latest technological trends, product reviews, and how-to. The site is completely free and the netcasts are released under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license.

MIT Technology Review

I came across the MIT Technology Review with a video that had Jack Dorsey talking about good technology. It led to more video “discoveries” that showcased technology discussions on the cutting edge. The videos dive into the practical aspects of new technologies and how they have the potential to change our society. From understanding the user experience design of Microsoft’s Windows 8 to meeting Baxter, a new kind of industrial robot, the videos cover a lot of ground. The videos are sporadically updated, but the variety of topics covered keeps me interested.


Technology shifts faster than sand. It is impossible to keep pace with everything that’s happening around us. For the geek, more is never enough, and the internet obliges with varied resources like tech news aggregators 10 Websites Where Cool Computer Geeks Reside Geeks were once ridiculed and reviled.

Perhaps, the trick is in applying some mental filters to focus on the news that matters. But it is always great to have choices.

Here’s hoping that these eight technology video websites add to yours. There are bound to be some glaring omissions on the list and I am waiting for the comments to fill up those gaps. So, let us know about your favorite watering holes for videos on technology events.

    That's interesting to include Internet Archive. I never thought of it as a tech website, but it seems to be.

    Generally, I don't really watch tech videos as the publishing companies put tons of annoying ads and videos aren't really my thing for consumption of tech.
