Hey fellow Wikipedians,
VideoWiki (Video version of Wikipedia) is LIVE (Website is best viewed on Google
Building a multi-media encyclopediawas considered impossible to build until now
because videos once uploaded on the internet cannot be edited again and
Wikipedia relies on being constantly updated and edited. We have just proved
that it is not only possible but also FUN to create ademocratic multi-media
.Similar to Wikipedia, anyone, including you, can edit an article right now,
without even having to log in.
Play around with the website. You will see that you can give life to your
favourite Wikipedia articles by converting them to VideoWiki articles.
Currently,we are an independent organization, however we are looking to partner
up WMF to evolve Wikipedia from a text-based encyclopedia to a multi-media
encyclopedia.I am personally travelling to Wikimania 2017 (Montreal) to discuss
the impact of Videowiki on Wikipedia. If you are interested in knowing about the
possible impact on organization structure and monetization strategy for
VideoWiki and Wikipedia , you can read my Medium article at -
Would love your thoughts, opinions and feedback on VideoWiki and if any
particular features you would like to see on VideoWiki?
Love, now and always,
Pratik ShettyCreator of VideoWiki
