Just finished Galbraith's "Affluent Society" - a great read for anyone wondering about what the economy of our generation might look like.

Trying to efficiently download Open Yale Courses without using iTunes.

So I'm on a linux box and have no access to iTunes. I'm trying to download a bunch of Open Yale Courses without having to manually click the download link for each page.

In particular, I'm trying to programmatically download all of the mp3 files on this page: http://oyc.yale.edu/political-science/capitalism-success-crisis-and-reform/content/downloads

Trying wget on the link destination doesn't work (and if you copy/paste the link into your browser, you end up with a blank page that says: "No file available for download"). If you click on the link manually, it works. I injected jQuery into the page and tried to do:

$('a[href$=".mp3"]').click()

But no dice there either. It's like it somehow knows if you're trying to programmatically download stuff. Any scraper gurus have any wisdom on this?

And philosophically... why is Open Yale Courses tied to iTunes?
This page contains downloadable files of all course pages and media from the course, Capitalism: Success, Crisis and Reform.

Looks like the magic ingredient is the "referrer" header... - +Peter Mains - I'd be interested in learning how you figured that out!

Forked a copy here: https://github.com/uhlenhuthm/oyc-downloader that I intend to tweak a bit, if you don't mind.

So, Josh and Daniel, one of my friends just forwarded me this article (http://news.yahoo.com/nasa-data-blow-gaping-hold-global-warming-alarmism-192334971.html) and I thought it'd be worthwhile to ask you, since you're working in the field, if you think it's possible that the discrepancy between climate models and reality is as large as this article makes it out to be.

Don't think so... I seem to remember them doing a big HTML5 makeover. Actually, now that you mention it, you're right. I couldn't use Grooveshark when my flash died.
