I am subscribed to several technology related newsletters, including those of InfoQ. Very often these newsletters feature very interesting content. Unfortunately, a increasingly large portion of those newsletters now includes broadcasts of presentations. With the emerge of Youtube, broadband and Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth, the trend is that information on the Internet should be in movies or sound.
That’s quite unfortunate for me. I often prefer to read something, rather then listening and watching something, at least to get information. Also, all too often I’m reading those newsletters in the occasion I can’t bother other people with sound. Well, could use a headphone – but I don’t have any ;-).
I wonder if other people have that problem too?
