Keeping track of the TEDtalks you've watched, an idea revisited

A few months ago, somebody posted an idea/question on the possibility of keeping track of TEDtalks you'd watch. I have made a small java application that let's you do just that. Here is the link for anyone who is interested:

This project is completely opensource, so if anybody wants to jump in and improve it, please do. If anybody else would like to make suggestions for improvements, I'll take that too. (I am working on improving the design)

Edit: TED partner series videos are not included. Working on integrating those. All TED and TEDx videos are there though.

Closing Statement from Matthieu Miossec

Thanks for the feedback!

    Dec 6 2011: @Nicholas: For some reason, hitting reply isn't working for me right now. The "need to watch" idea is really good. Can you expand on bookmarks? I'm not sure what you mean.

      Dec 7 2011: Yeah it's not working on my laptop either.

      Well on an open source database like you provided, or the bookmarks of Modzilla; both can create files to sort
      TED videos under.

      I have like 55 files, I put TED talks into folders relative to what they are about."art" "neuroscience" "sociology" "technology" etc. "Need to read/watch" - for rainy days. Not too organized.

      There are websites with better organizers online.
