It's odd -- think I like print interviews better. You can go at your own speed.

I wonder if people like my videos on my site. I don't get that impression.


I cringe every time there's some interesting, worthy discussion, but people only insist on it being a video with talking heads. I *hate* watching videos like that, video should be used to add something to the whole -- like e.g. you could be showing some schematics, formulas or something else that is difficult to portray via speech only but that is also relevant to the discussion -- not just used as a filler when you can't think of anything better to do with your time.

I get more people looking at my ScreenShots page than videos. I used to have a video on my main page. Ain't nobody got time for that. :-)

I don't know what you've got screenshots/video of, but unless you're showing off some specific animations or trying to show something that a simple 2D-image would have trouble with -- e.g. 4-dimensional structures? -- then it's quite understandable that people steer towards screenshots: they likely already portray 95%+ of the same information as could be gleaned from a video, but with less artifacting and faster loading.

I'm interested in UI-design and I like to pay some attention to the design behind flow of actions and, well, it bothers me horribly when people overuse video.
