I just read about an interesting new website called SciVee created by The National Science Foundation, Public Library of Science, and the San Diego Supercomputing Center that appears to be targeted to become a YouTube for Science. According to the Slashdot post scientists can upload their research papers, accompanied by a video where they describe the work in the form of a short lecture, accompanied by a presentation.
A quick perusal of the SciVee website front page right now shows a featured pubcast called Structural Evolution of the Protein Kinase-Like Superfamily. I will need to explore it some more but judging on first impressions it appears to be a great idea. Instead of watching mindless stuff on You Tube I now have the option of tuning into some intellectually stimulating content for a change. It will definitely be very interesting to see what kind of scientific content makes it onto SciVee as the site matures and grows. If you have the time SciVee is worth checking out and bookmarking.
