Earlier today I wondered on twitter whether it’s better, in certain cases, to blog or vlog, noting especially that I can talk faster than I can type. So what I did was type a normal blog post (the one prior to this on this blog) and now I’ve done a somewhat different video version of it:
I think the regular blog post is better. It took me longer and I really had to think about what I was saying. Of course, I could have done that with the screencast as well, but my typical style for screencasting is to think about the problem for a little while and then hit record. No second takes, no scripts. You can probably tell
It’s certainly true that I talk faster than I type, and I really appreciate having my pen tablet to let me draw the system. But somehow I think the regular post is going to resonate with readers/viewers better since it has a little of both (typing and video). Pun on purpose there, by the way.
