    • I wish I could do that, but ScienceSwitch’s sole intention is to spotlight some of the best science videos found on the Internet. At least it’s doing a better job then Digg Video, Unplugthetv, Realclearscience Video and many others. Almost every video in it comes with references for those interested in exploring further. And thank you. I might consider your suggestion when my userbase grows.
