Great that Princeton is offering this for free.  I have it downloaded on my computer from a month ago but have yet to dive in heavy.  Some if it is intimidating.  Thanks for sharing for those that do not know about it.

I love Bitcoin

Ok you ripped the Coursera bitcoin course and put it on youtube. Original lectures/materials can be found here: https://www.coursera.org/course/bitcointech

The design of your site could use some work. Some of the videos don't work.

free & definitely from coursera, lectures had free download buttons for each so no ripping was needed.

the website I started does allow you to watch + read everything for free so its all the same

wordpress + best theme I could find  Cry

The princeton bitcoin book is absolutely a must read! Very interesting.

Interested in Bitcoin, NXT and many others. Do your own investigation on coins that look interesting! Only buy the amount you can afford to lose.
