Lights, camera... wiki!

If you've ever entertained a fantasy of working behind the camera, you'll be interested in a new project at the Wikimedia Foundation.

Sometime within the next few months, all Wikipedia pages will become equipped with an "Add media" button. Clicking it will bring up an interface allowing you to search for video and drag chosen portions into the article, without having to install any video-editing software or do any conversions yourself. The results will appear as a clickable video clip embedded within the article.

This new feature will essentially create the potential for every Wikipedia article to be collaboratively transformed into a multimedia presentation. Read all about it at Technology Review.
