I also rabidly hawk Bloggingheads by linking to diavlogs when an appropriate topic is breached and I frequently refer to Robert Wright in severely glowing terms.

Now, I ask a favor: I live in China, which is dutifully protecting me with The Golden shield Project (http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200803/chinese-firewall). This makes it exceedingly difficult to get the iTunes downloads to work, and the direct download from the site is occasionally functional, but frequently slow and frequently the victim of a dropped connection or something similar. It goes without saying that viewing the videos on the site is an arduous and frequently frustrating and unrewarding ordeal.

Please, please please make diavlogs available as bitttorrent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bittorrent) downloads. China has not yet gone after torrents (to the best of my knowledge), and they're as fast if not faster than they were when I was in the United States.

Also, please try to get James Fallows to do diavlogs.
