You have always admired these geeks and tech pioneers, you use the technologies they have developed, now here's a chance to listen to them on NerdTV.
Nerd TV is a technology video podcast from PBS that's not aired on TV but available only on the internet under a Creative-Commons license.

Unfortunately the NerdTV "Charlie Rose for Geeks" show is discontinued now so there aren't any fresh interviews with the Tech Tycoons of the Web 2.0 era. Nevertheless, the archives are worth watching.
Interesting Tidbit: Tim O'Reilly noticed the free software didn't come with free printed manuals and so a publishing empire was born.
