Watch Out World - Wikipedia To Offer Video

OMG! Alright everyone, are you ready for this? According to MIT's Technology Review, Wikipedia will soon be launching a module that will enable users to access, edit and attach open source videos to Wikipedia entries. Article author David Talbot writes, "Erik Moeller, deputy director of the Wikimedia Foundation, says that he hopes the effort will help promote wider access to vast stores of historical material, political speeches, interviews, documentaries, and anything else that could figure into Wikipedia, the world's seventh most popular website."

For an open-source proponent like me, this is a dream come true. I can't wait to watch what happens - pun intended of course!
