I know video is getting bigger, but I'm thinking this could be part of a larger shift. I'm starting to wonder if we might get to a place within the next decade where a very large part of search engine results will actually be video, and not written text. What if the landscape of the web changes significantly?
If this is the case, then it's only a matter of time before those of us who base our businesses on written content are going to have a harder and harder time appealing to customers. Will video turn the rest of us into dinosaurs of the past? What if text starts to seem outdated and boring?
Hopefully I'm reading too much into this, but think about mobile internet, for example. Watching a video on a smart phone just seems more convenient than reading text.
What do you all think? Hopefully text will stick around for a good long time.
