Comments on: Can Video Comments Explain Why Phone Numbers Matter in Local Search Search Engine Optimisation Ireland Tue, 31 Mar 2015 10:03:56 +0100 hourly 1 By: Richard Hearne Tue, 03 Nov 2009 12:22:37 +0000 I’m thinking short video, twitter-style :) Less than 30 seconds.

But I see where you’re coming from also Conor. I reckon maybe Seesmic may have been too early to the party TBH, and Eric Schmidt’s recent comments on where the web will be in 5 years add useful context to this:

Eric Schmidt thoughts on the future of the Internet

I also agree about screencasting, and perhaps my thoughts are more applicable for a blog like mine where we’re talking about web stuff.

Thanks for commenting, rgds

The idea of video comments died a death tho and Seesmic has basically given up on the idea after getting no traction. The problem seems to be that very few people want to create the video comments but, even worse, no-one has the time to look at them!

In contrast, I’ve become a huge fan of screencasts recently and any time a client asks any sort of non-trivial question, I fire up Screentoaster and do a screencast rather than writing paragraphs of text explanations.
