What is it? What is it?
Reviewing some blog debates, I stumbled upon a post from Mindy Mcadams. Yep, she's got my vote
"I can’t help but think that video is the content of the previous “new medium” — television. As McLuhan said in 1964, the early content of any new medium is always an old medium (radio programs were the early content of TV). So if video does come to dominate online, I would be surprised if that turned out to be the permanent state of affairs. I don’t want to receive all my information about world affairs and local issues by watching video. I doubt that everyone else does."
