    I notice that these video conversations get far fewer recomendations than the written articles. Just an observation.

    I'm not sure that trying to start a movement against video online is going to gather much momentum. There was a point in time when companies had to begin abandoning the Apple IIe series. The future just took hold, and the world moved toward high power computing options.

    The fact is, The Motley Fool is going to be creating more and more video coverage of the financial markets. We also have audio podcasts. And yet we still also publish thousands upon thousands of writting articles every month.

    I hope you enjoy all of it -- as much as I do. :)

    Fool on, Tom

    Yeah, I'm not making the connection between the Apple IIe and the written word. That's like apples and beer... not even apple and oranges (<Ok, come on, that's a good pun). As I type I can't help but wonder if written language is obsolete? But somehow I don't think writing could become obsolete.

    I guess I'd say, the written word has a very large moat. ;)

    Perhaps some simple transcript software? and a "click the link to see transcript" somewhere on the page. That would be cool, and a nice touch for us Fools that live in remote areas. I just can't do streaming very well where I am so I just click on the next one. Oh well, the price of paradise I suppose.

    One thing I always liked about Motley Fool is that it this place is not just a bunch of Talking Heads. But as you say, I guess the future is taking hold.

    Good points, both of you. I will endeavor to make you happy. We are thankful you are Fools. :)

    P.S. Writing is here to stay. Multimedia is the future...multiple mediums of communication. Thanks for your notes.

    Thanks for the open ear (well, eyes for reading) Tom.

    I know there are also plenty of Fools that like to read through the articles at their place of business and putting on a pair of headphones to listen to the videos and podcasts is probably not going to fly too far in an office environment.

    But with that said, I am all for multimedia, the digital revolution, downloading content in a blink of an eye, and putting a video you just made on facebook within 30 seconds of filming and so-forth.
