StoryVault

This site continues the ancient tradition of oral storytelling via the medium of video.

www.storyvault.com encourages people to record and share their friends' and families' memories of events in their lives, be they of personal or historical significance.

You can already watch interviews with World War II veterans and the last Titanic survivor, and easily upload your own. The smart-looking site also features a family-tree builder and has a strong sense of community, letting you rate and comment on other users' content (unless they mark it as private). StoryVault is a great idea and the execution is superb.
