"Decline of text in favour of videos means more Trumps and Berlusconis
around the world. How can we save our democracies?"
I far prefer to read a transcript (or better yet an article) than watch
a video, because I can read a lot faster than I can listen to someone
talk and I can much more easily go back to earlier portions or take
longer to think about particular sections. And I prefer to look at
graphs and diagrams without being distracted by someone talking at the
same time. But I am probably not representative.
Here's another interesting perspective:
"Our interfaces are leaping off screens and onto our bodies, into our
living rooms, and steadily into the most intimate spaces of our lives.
There’s huge opportunity here, but also significant risk. Will the
technology bend to our lives, or will it be the reverse?"
