Dennis, one of our most dependable sources for interesting links, submitted “Videopedia” today. It’s quite interesting — think of it as a sort of Wikipedia, where the content is not just text, hyperlinks and Creative Commons images but instead user-submitted videos.
The vision is quite straightforward: Everyone is an expert in something. Knowledge of that something can be visually explained in less than 5 minutes. Users can easily upload their shorts, using a visual storyboard to annotate videos and add outbound hyperlinks. While the Web site is still relatively new, there’s already some useful content in the tech section including Running ScanDisk in XP and How to do a Google Search.
