Answerbag offers video answers

New site uses video clips to answer questions.

Answerbag was set to launch a new feature Monday that allows people to insert video into their answers to other peoples' questions. In a demo, the question "How do I make a dry martini?" was answered with video of a bartender explaining the steps involved as she poured in the gin and splashed in Vermouth.

"The vast majority of human learning is done by seeing rather than reading," said George Lichter, chief executive of InfoSearch Media, which owns AnswerBag.
