Twitter took blogging to microblogging.  Now sites like and are introducing us to the concept of microvideo.

The New York Times ran a great introductory article yesterday.

What do you think? Will Microvideo become the new medium of choice, augment Twitter, or just fade away?

    I think microvideo and twitter will fade away.

    There’s a certain ooh-ahh at the moment, but like blogging before them, so many users will realize that knowing the up-to-the-minute details of what other people are doing is simply not interesting. Remember, blogs used to be like that too. They changed over time when people started to figure out they wanted a bit of substance. The “what I’m doing now” blogs all but disappeared.

    So too, will twitter and things related. People might go all googly-eyed now, but at the end of the day, to make something stick, it needs substance. Microvideo, like twitter, offers little substance. It’s a chore to keep up with it. If you are a student, or otherwise have little activity in your life, it might be fun… but time marches on, we all get commitments and we grow up.
