C-SPAN video online, digitized and shareable, is this C-SPAN 2.0?

Something amazing has happened over at C-SPAN. In their Archives division they have put online 25 years worth of video covering American culture and politics.

Even better the website was done by JESS3, which means that it is top-notch. This includes best videos of the day, month, and forever (by views). Plus, most shared videos, embeddable spots, an interactive schedule, a page for each member of congress, and more.

It’s pretty incredible…now I just need to find a way to add civic programming into my all-entertainment schedule.

Every C-SPAN program aired since 1987, now totaling over 170,000 hours, is contained in the C-SPAN Archives and immediately accessible.
