Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

I agree, nearly 100%. I'm all about the speed of information transfer. If you post an audio file and I don't have a road trip coming up, there'd better be a transcript of the thing.
That tiny bit, the reason I say "nearly 100%", is because I will make allowances for exceptionally appealing presenters. Those times are quite rare though.
