Seriously. I find it intrusive and time consuming. I tend to put aside some time to watch my favourite shows on DVD and of course I'll sit and watch movies on DVD, but that's not what I want to talk about.
There appears to be a growing trend of people publishing podcasts and online videos with regards to technical articles and interviews. While I'm working I haven't got time to watch a video and I can't listen to someone rambling on about something when I'm trying to concentrate on what I'm doing.
I'm sure I'm missing out on a lot of good stuff, but I much prefer text and pictures on a web page. I can scan read and the pictures, if appropriate, will aid my understanding of what I have scan read. If I pick up on something that requires more attention I bookmark it and come back to it later when I can read it in detail. I can quickly access the importance and relevance of a document while I'm working, without it interupting me too much.
Videos and podcasts don't allow for that kind of interaction. They are also not searchable by search engines.
I feel as though the technical community is taking a step backwards from what the internet is supposed to be. For me the internet is a fantastic place to find information in a randomly accessible way. At least consider posting a transcript of your video or podcast somewhere accessible. Thanks!
