  • CuriosityStream – a place to find interesting documentaries

    Yesterday I started exploring CuriosityStream, a video streaming website that makes finding and watching documentaries easy. You can have a trial run of seven days but after watching three documentaries since yesterday evening I am convinced that it is a place where I want to watch more content.  I like documentaries that are well produced […]

  • Video piracy in the 21st century
