AthenaWeb bids to be the YouTube of science

First set up in 2005, AthenaWeb was recently relaunched as what the notice on AlphaGalileo calls AthenaWeb – Take 2. The announcement describes it as "an all-in-one web-workstation for science communicators to broadcast their films, build contacts, promote their businesses, swap news, blog ideas, publish findings, and work on their programmes and projects from anywhere in Europe, or the world".

The service aims itself at science communicators. AthenaWeb's web site has a top 5 "hit videos as well as an RSS news feed. The list of Science & media events looks like an itinerary for a pretty good tour of Europe, make that the world, they even list the "2007 World Congress of Science and Factual Producers" which happens in November in New York City.
