threads like this pop up often.

I skate and workout a lot, spent more time playing guitar, read books. Stuff I normally do just without snowboarding

Wakeboarding, hiking, camping, and motorcycle riding. Only 6 months until snow, you need a Summer hobby.

Its about time to bring out the fly rod and hit some Cascade lakes once the snow melts a little bit more. Went out for the second bike ride of the year. These days I'm pretty much warm weather rider, it has to be over 70 degrees. Will again hit up Yellowstone this summer as I'm a big Yellowstone junkie.

....and of course put some warm weather wax on the board so I can ride Timberline four or five times during the summer.

Studying chemistry and math for my next semester, and physics for my grandfather. Hiking, internship, and hiking, also hiking.

Figured this was a good place to put a list of links I was able to find and posted on another forum. If anyone feels the urge to learn something new, this should be a good starting list (though it doesn't have everything). Maybe if you feel your summer day is lagging a little too much you could make it a bit more productive.

---------Links to academia by autodidact methods---------

Go here for most of the edu resources!
Here too!


To start off here are some university funded projects:

MIT OpenCourseWare
MIT presents us with 1800 courses worth of information.
Free Online Course Materials | MIT OpenCourseWare

MIT Lecture Videos
YouTube - MIT's Channel

Stanford Itunes U
Stanford on iTunes U

Stanford Lecture Videos
YouTube - stanforduniversity's Channel

Berkley Lecture Videos <<Thanks to Sonuvbob
UC Berkeley Webcasts | Video and Podcasts: Spring 2009 Courses


Great channel for math tutorials:
Khan Academy
YouTube - khanacademy's Channel

N - If your not good at grasping information in book form, this instructor is brilliant at video tutorials of math.


Gerard 't Hooft guide to becoming a physicist:
HOW to BECOME a GOOD Theoretical Physicist
Gerard ’t Hooft, Theoretical Physics as a Challenge

N - Includes links to instructional sites that range from statistics to particle physics.


Microbiology:
Many things dealing with cells and genetics
Learn.Genetics (TM)

Psychology:
Classics
Classics in the History of Psychology


Languages:
BBC
BBC - Languages - Homepage

Live Mocha Similar to Rosetta with a scheduler.
Language Learning with Livemocha | Learn a Language Online - Free!

W2W Composite of free language lessons online.
Free Online Language Courses


Internet Script:
Learning Java
Free Java Programming Online Training and Tutorials Course by Sang Shin


Free Book Resources:
20+ PD Book Links
Scrib'd


Documentaries:
best.online.docus - Best Online Documentaries


Hopefully this will quench the thirst of those wishing to learn. If your tired of procrastinating and really want to broaden your horizons then pick a topic and you'll find it on the net (more than likely for free). Don't let the internet go to waste, make your choice to learn something new and do it!



EDIT:
Some sites to keep up on the pioneers and advancement of your interests.
arXiv.org e-Print archive
EDGE
TED: Ideas worth spreading
FORA.tv - Videos on the People, Issues, and Ideas Changing the Planet

Why study physics for your grandfather? Is he paying you to take his exams?
