Reddit creates a team devoted to original videos

Reddit is about to host a lot more than links and comments. The social site is launching a dedicated team that will produce original video content. It'll initially focus on bringing the spirit of Ask Me Anything sessions to video, but it'll eventually look at covering stories from subreddits and individual users -- if you've seen the "Explain Like I'm Five" adaptation, that's a hint at where Reddit is going. It's hard to tell if this will click with a community that's more about impromptu discussions than slick presentations, but Reddit is clearly willing to find out whether or not there's money to be made in moving pictures.
