Yapping in a podcast may be worse than on TV

There’s a lot of talk these days about video podcasts taking off in 2006. And, I certainly agree that hobbyists will take to it like they have with audio blogging/podcasting. Jakob Nielsen recently discussed how video podcasting may be worse than TV from a usability perspective in his Talking-Head Video Is Boring Online article.

Of course, even if video podcasts won’t suck and their usability will not be challenging there’s still the slight problem of business model: will there be enough advertisers interested in small-market (long tail) video blogs? Will a subscription model work? It’ll be fascinating to watch everyone try and make money on it!

One thought on “Yapping in a podcast may be worse than on TV

  1. cnn.com offers free video feeds. I watched them when they were first released a few months ago; however, now I still prefer to read the news. Watching a video requires that I stop everything, which most of the time isnÂ’t possible due to the multiple things IÂ’m trying to accomplish at any given time. Reading at my leisure appears to be more flexible.
