Day 1: Comment08

By Kate Foy

Interesting that this little video continues to get referenced. A year on and we’re still not all that ‘easy’ with video commenting. It seems that words rule whether they’re delimited by 140 characters (Twitter-ish) or given full rein in a blog post. Lots of reasons for this of course – the single most-cited is that video and audio comments can’t be scanned quickly. However I suspect the reticence to use video has as much to do with performance anxiety as it does with lack of scannability.

A first video post for Day 1 of the 31 Day Comment Challenge. Here we go, here we go. Looking forward to meeting many more like-minded bloggers. Good luck!
