The internet is full of priceless videos from Youtube, Daily Motion, Viemo and others where you can locate your favorite songs, listen to college professors, watch someone make a pie, learn how to paint a house or publish a book. Actually, anything you need to learn or understand can be found somewhere on the web!
Skype and Oovoo are sites that allow you to see who you’re talking to in real time. I always think of Jane Jetson on the Saturday morning cartoons when she sat in front of a computer screen and saw the person she was talking to. That image always stayed with me and now “I am Jane!”
Using Skype, I can call and see my friend in the mountains or my sister in Ireland for free. Last month I downloaded Oovoo and there were 4 family members on my laptop screen all talking away!
Watching videos on Ted is a great way to learn life lessons from people who are reaching out and bringing back new ideas, possibilities and hope. Ted has a wide range of interests including entertainment, technology and science and business. There is something for everyone presented by the most amazing people.
If you go to Hulu you’ll have the ability to watch yesterday’s TV show on your pc. If you’re traveling or stuck somewhere, it may be a good time to catch up on that mindless program that will help you pass the time.
At Online Video Guide (OVGuide) you’ll get a list of the cream of the crop videos. Why trudge through mud when this site can help you find the finest videos around?

- How to make a pie crust
