Hello Everyone, I've compiled a folder of 47 items, roughly 350mb of all Sam's lectures, interviews, essays, etc. I'd love to post it to a "yousendit" type site or other file host but I'm not familiar with how to go about doing so for a large number of people. If someone can direct me to a site to upload to, I'd be happy to make it available for all…
I can’t help out w/ the computer details, but I applaud this effort.
If you look at my topic “Media Archive”, I’ve already attempted to make a comprehensive list of all things Sam Harris.
In the interim, could you post a list here of everything you’ve got? In particular, are there any audio materials you have that are not already present under the archive I’ve started?
Look forward to hearing from you.

You could try http://www.wikiupload.com/index.php
It’s free and you don’t have to subscribe. You’ll just have to zip your folder (containing all the 47 items) so you can upload just this one item.
Once uploaded, you would then copy/paste the page address here so folks can go and get your zip file (who then simply de-zip (decompress) and they’ll have your original folder and contents).
There may be other sites offering similar services, but this one works and it’s easy.
Any progress on the Sam Harris folder?
Any chance you can post a quick list of the included materials?
Yeah, that would be very much appreciated.
I have assembled a folder with my entire collection of Sam Harris audio. I have 30-40 items in all. This comprises all of the audio from his website, plus all of the items listed in my MEDIA FOLDER topic, plus some new stuff. The collection is in the 800 MB range.
I am in the process of trying to upload this to the Wiki-Upload site.
I will let you know when it is available (hopefully in the next day or so) and post the link here. I will also post a detailed list describing every item in the folder.
I’d be willing to assist in the hosting as well, especially if you’re unable to find a place. I’ll post each piece individually(not in a bulk package) at my site, http://www.rationalresponders.com
I suppose the easiest way will be to wait for one of your folders to be online so I can download them. If either of you are unable to get your packages online we can arrange for you to send the files to me via msn or skype messenger programs.
I have uploaded my entire digital library of Sam Harris audio to the Wiki-Upload site.
There are 38 files total. In all, they take up about 750 MB of disk space. They comprise all of Sam’s website content, plus everything I’ve found by hours of intense internet searching. I have listed many of the direct links for this material under my previous topic “MEDIA ARCHIVE”.
Many of these audio files including the Al Franken show, Michael Medved show, Infidel Guy show, Ian Masters Background Briefing, Left Out, Rational Response Squad, and many others, are not available on samharris.org.
I have also included the audio tracks for many of Sam’s TV appearances, including the full track of his extended interview appearance on the DVD “The God Who Wasn’t There”.
Sam’s lectures are essential for anyone unfamiliar with his work. Check out the University Synagogue lecture from Book TV/C-Span, his lecture at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, his View from the End of the World lecture for the Long Now Foundation, the Idea City Conference 2005, as well as IT Conversations Pop!Tech lecture on The Future of Ideas.
Here is the link to the Wiki-Upload site:
This should be the direct link. Alternatively, to find these materials, go to the “Search” link, then search “by description” for “Sam Harris”. Ignore the first two files, the next 38 files are the ones I’ve uploaded. If the list is truncated, click on “more files” to expand the list.
Here is the complete list of 38 files in order:

The Wiki-Upload site removes files that are not downloaded within the prior 30 days. Therefore it is not necessarily a permanent home for this stuff—there will always be the chance of things being removed.
If the Rational Response Squad would like to provide a permanent space for these files on their site, I think that is a great idea. Anything to preserve this stuff online so that everyone can access it sounds great to me.
