Screencasts for life science informatics

Deepak blogged about screencasting for bio topics, concentrated at of which he is co-owner. I guess it is like a YouTube for bioinformatics thingies. Jean-Claude picked this up very quickly (seen on Cb? At least I did.), and already uploaded a screencast, demoing JSpecView written by Robert. I wonder if he will upload the screencasts he made for Bioclipse too? (hint, hint ... :)

I have no idea if this site will be a success, but at least it has the right ingredients: tags, flash movies, clean UI, a blog to monitor technological changes and improvements, and a page to request screencasts (with voting). What I only miss is a one summary page for each screencast to which I can easily link, for example for my account.
