Robin Good: Present.Me is a web app which allows you to easily combine your presentation with your own talking head video, in perfect sync.
First you upload your image slides or presentation file (PowerPoint, PDF, Excel, Word, OpenOffice or Google Docs) and then you can record your video from your webcam while playing back the slides at your own preferred pace. You can also pause and restart any time.
Present.me now features a "trim" function allowing you to cut out mistakes and errors you have made and allows to create also presentations with your audio only (no video).
The final presentation can be shared online on all major social networks or embedded in any site or blog.
There is both a free plan, allowing for up to 3 presentations of 15 mins, as well as paid plans costing $9 (30 presentations of 60 mins and no ads) and $39/month (unlimited).
Zeeik has created a new way to reuse online videos to make and share video-only-consisted information, video Wikipedia; after disassembling videos by scenes or targeted parts, users can reassemble them to create a meaningful video group, a zeeik.
On Zeeik.com, collected YouTube videos are packed and maintained in a video collection called a “zeeik.”
Users are encouraged to collaborate on zeeiks and can partake in any or all of the following steps: request a zeeik, contribute and review videos in the zeeik, or edit and publish the zeeik.
Users can also share their zeeiks with friends, making Zeeik.com a social website.
Presently, only YouTube videos are available to include in a zeeik, but that won’t always be the case.

This piece was written by Shelly Kramer along with an infographic that shows you the activity on the web coming from mobile devices, smartphones, tablets, iPads and the like. As we all know the pace is excelerating and as the author says, it's very exciting. Beyond the exhileration, I selected this article because the information and questions she asks you are timely and relevant.

Robin Good: Grockit Answers is a web app that allows anyone to build a Q&A or discussion board around a specific video.
Multiple questions can be asked and each one of them can be connected to a specific point in the video.
Great to introduce new video-based content and engage your fans on it.
"In Grockit Answers, interactions happen around video lectures, and participants ask and answer questions about specific points in the lecture.
Since every question is attached to a specific point in time in the video, Grockit Answers displays a question and its answers at the point in the lecture that they are most relevant.
And since the things that confuse you are likely to be the same things that confuse others, you'll find that answers to your own questions pop up on the screen just as you're starting to get confused."

However, unfortunately many business leaders find they don’t get used. The share buttons sit on their site with the lonely zero or default +1. Chances are your pocket book or wallet might be feeling a little lonely too.
What if you took the same time you spend on the share bars, share buttons and tools and instead first focus on something worthy of a share? I know it sounds like a crazy concept because after all it’s far easier to focus on the bright shiny objects, geeky tools and data analytics.
Trust me, I am a data junkie and could literally spend all day helping my clients dig into the heads of their target audiences with a goal of embedding their brand in their brains!
