My Love/Hate of Video

Is this just an age thing? Seems there is such a demand and audience for video content. Video on your phone, video on web sites, etc. OK, I’m not anti-video per se, but video demands a big chunk of time before I can tell if it’s interesting. Video just can’t be skimmed! VideoYou want to make video better? Give me a little text around it that tells me what I’m going to see. Then, within the first few (very few) seconds of the video itself, convince me it’s worth it.

And yet, I know, there is great stuff I’m missing. I need a “this is worth it” pre-filter. Got one?
