I recently came across this neat multimedia science community web service called SciVee [http://www.scivee.tv/]. Other than blogs/ forums the site is composed of some quite unique features focused on ‘making your research known’.
–Postercasts – In these, researchers are interviewed about their poster presentations typically conducted at conferences. While viewing a video of the presentation SciVee allows you to view a detailed image of their poster along side. This is quite a valuable resource for conferences especially for post-conference reviews/ follow ups. Would be interesting to see if SciVee or a competitior offer this technology to conference organisers.
–Pubcasts – These are videos of researches discussing their recent publication typically combined with animations.
