I've recently discovered Howcast, and I think that it's simply GREAT!
Howcast is a video-knowledge sharing website. Howcast's positioning is Cool how-to videos and guides from cutting-edge filmmakers, savvy experts - and you!
Howcast hosts some of the best videos I've seen on the web in the last few weeks. Here I give you 2 examples:
- How to have sex in a Car
- How To Make a Move on a Girl While Watching a Movie on a Couch (video of the Day)
The most interesting and catching aspect of Howcast is the "How to" formula. Every video is in fact a video guide on How to *something*. The interface of video uploading lets you add Chapter Markers with text descriptions and printable guides. It's a
totally partially new way of knowledge sharing, and it is based on effective social tools - the uploading panel and the "How to" framing.
By the way, the URL of the videos are Search Engine Optimized and the graphic design is really fresh and enjoyable.
Oh, Howcast is still in beta, and the URL is obviously Howcast.com.
