A completely orthogonal point is that we really need video to embed
textual cues that can be scanned faster than video can be watched or
easily text-mined.  You don't have time to pre-chew content for me.  I
don't have time to consume that much video.  I'm not sure what else is
more important at any given moment... but seem to be wasting as much
time in context-switches as we gain in multitasking and drinking
less-deeply from any given content stream.

In some sense, I guess the comment thread below a youtube/et al. video
does act as that keyword/key-concept pool.

Sorry, I'm way off-topic for this subject/thread.  Please resume on-track.  :)
