As positive "food for thought" I ask this. Years ago Ted Talks were in text form. They found that Video(18 mins) was the best platform to pass information. People here have asked "what hubs get the most hits?" Which tend to be "fluffy" topics, not deep insightful research papers. News papers went the way of "Fluff" and Ted Talks went with Video. Are Hubpages going through the same learning curve? Obviously not 100%, but where are written blogs going to be in the next 5 years in this landscape?
