Do You Have A Favorite Word?

October 23, 2008

If so, go to www.wordia.com and upload a video of yourself sharing its definition. This relatively new online resource is positioned as “a place where anyone with a video, webcam or mobile phone can define the words that matter to them in their life.” Trendspotters at Springwise.com featured the site in a recent newsletter describing it as “a video dictionary with a wiki touch.”

I’m not sure I’d ever use it in the same way I would reference Wikipedia (and it’s unlikely to help Amanda resolve any of her debates per her previous post), but it does have some entertainment value and provides a visual association for somewhat unfamiliar words. I guess you could say it’s a little bit like a social network for word lovers.  Watch the BBC interview below for more on Wordia from co-founder Ed Baker.
