I Hate Watching Videos to Learn Things

I read pretty fast and I’m easily distracted, so watching your twenty minute video about a topic that could just as easily been written down in three paragraphs is pretty frustrating for me.

Is it because video production is easier than writing well? Uncharitably, I suspect it’s because rambling into a camera ends up being more engaging for audiences than a carefully edited article. Then again, this site is proof that you don’t have to edit that carefully to get things going.

This is part of my belief in the supremacy of text.
