An article yesterday in the New York Times titled “Making Money the How-To Way” discusses the new trend in internet video. Many website that are similar to YouTube, but specialize in “how-to” or educational videos are beginning to turn profits. This is an interesting new trend in film and Web 2.0 development. In conversation today, somebody told me that this new concept was sort of like a wiki video network. This phenomenon is not new, but apparently it has finally begun to take off. My brother worked for a website that was very similar to those described in this article that was based in Barcelona, Spain.

For a nice example of one of these “how-to” videos, watch this one…

“How to chill a coke in 2 minutes”
