I've just spent 2 hours trying to keep up with some videos (Frank's among them, I think), in between doing other stuff on my 5 PC screens to maximize my work time. I actually learnt nothing.
It's darn near impossible to suck in the knowledge I need for keeping up with my field when I have to watch video.
So I don't watch it anymore. I can't afford to. I spend 30 minutes writing a daily newsletter and blog, a few hours on sales and new product development, 30 minutes looking for The Next Big Thing (which I never find BTW), 3 minutes cleaning my teeth... you get it.
There's not much time left in the day to watch video.
I believe it is the worst kind of information-push any time restricted business person can experience.
Sure, if you're a buyer with time on your hands then maybe it's a good way to sell. But I'm not one, and they slow me down a lot.
So I never buy video products, even if they promise to reveal the NBT - unless they have a transcript enclosed.
There's a lot to be said for the written word with a short headline, subheads and bullet points. Quick. Speedy. Then on to the next thing. I can flip through an hour-long video transcript in several minutes. The time saved is invaluable.
Don't get me wrong - I love video. I have 9 screens in my office not counting the iPhone on a charger. I videoconference almost daily on my 24" iMac, which I bought specially for doing this.
But print wins when it comes to knowledge stuffing.
