It seems like everyone wants to get into the online video thing…and AdAge is no different than that rest. Their morning email blast is now nothing more than a bunch of links to online video reports.
I hate it.
I get the morning update at my office and like to read it at my office. I much less prefer to have to put my headphones on and listen to/watch a few AdAgers talk to me than to just read the precis and click the link. I am at work. I don’t want to watch videos at work.
Except, I will admit it, funny YouTube clips. But that’s it.
For my news, I like to have that delivered in a format that I can read. And perhaps step away from and later come back to. That I can cut and paste from to send to co-workers (or ex-coworkers as the case may be). That I can forward to the account team so they can send to a client.
You can’t do that with the crappy 3-minute video report or any of the rest of those video reports. Please go back to just printed news.
Am I a dinosaur?
