RSS? Bookmarking? Twitter? Wikis?

If you work with computers, every so often you will get asked by a teacher or student to explain some aspect or feature of the Web 2.0 world. But what if you are not available, or if the person just needs a quick refresher? I've often thought of creating a "short & snappy" series of video clips that give a quick overview in clear, easy to understand terms, that I could then post for my students and colleagues to refer to.

Well, guess what...someone's already done it...and it's great. Check out "Common Craft": a website that provides, in plain English, with a snappy video clip and engaging patter, just what I was looking for.
