TED’s curator, Chris Anderson, gave a thoughtful interview via Skype to Tim Dick of the Sydney Morning Herald, just posted today, talking about the growing power of web video. From the story:
Anderson thinks web video represents a fundamental shift … the potential of which is unimaginable.
”There is something mysterious, magical and incredibly powerful when a group of humans watch another human teaching or speaking,” he says. ”They see things that the text alone can’t convey. And for the first time in history, that kind of communication can scale from one human to millions.”
