Video captures more and more conversation

21 Feb

It just occurred to me that I had three conversations yesterday about two different pieces of video.
 

That is one happy dog.

That is one happy dog.

One was your traditional dog-does-it video, and the other was news video that I missed in the cable scan but rediscovered atop Drudge Report.

 

Now I will sheepishly admit that I did not begin a conversation with either the book that I am reading or from anything eye-popping in my morning scan of the news wires. The rebels were laying low in the Shenandoah Valley and nothing was in flames or screaming for attention on the news wires.

 

Sheepishly, yes – an English major, I recall voluminous discussion of novels, magazine pieces, and newspaper stories. Even the classic coffee shop moment of crunching a football summary or flagging an editorial had been replaced by video.

 

FriendFeed, Facebook, Twitter and even your e-mail queue are chock full of ideas anchored in video format.

 

The potential to self-publish in video allows every single person and their dog to broadcast a thread. Video and conversational reference to video content is as typical as a daily greeting or weather reference.

 

Looks like rain. Did you see the band kid video?
