Video Is The New Text File / Infomercial
Make Magazine make an interesting comment on their site about how video (like the one in this post) has become the new user-manual and that we, or at least tech-geeks don’t tend to learn from text anymore:
We think there are some good opportunities for people who makes things to share their skills and how they create and make a living doing that (and we’ve shared some initial numbers). Videos are becoming the new “text files” – if you grew up learning about some techy topics by text files shared around you likely recognize the analogy. Etsy sellers, makers and anyone who makes things might want to experiment with this model of sharing their skills with other online via video and having actually things to buy as part of the video, but not just an “advertisement” or “infomercial”.
