Automattic Turns on WordPress TV

Automattic, the company behind the popular blogging platform WordPress , yesterday announced their new site WordPress TV, a place where you can find all things WordPress in visual form. Filled with tutorials for both WordPress.com and WordPress.org, the site has also been designed to give footage from WordCamps of the past a home on the Web.

At the moment, WordPress TV hosts about 24 videos, divided between WordCamp TV and basic how-to videos but a lot more is on its way. Over time the site is expected to host a variety of videos as well as slideshows of presentations made by the WordPress team.

"We hope you'll consider WordPress.tv not just a support resource, but a place to hang out and keep up with all the geeky goodness going on in the WordPress community," Matt Mullenweg said in a post on the launch of the new service.

The introductory video (embedded below) gives a brief overview of the site and calls out to the WordPress community for help; if you've got a video you think should be added, or want to request a specific tutorial, you can put in a request to Team Automattic.
