Text and video modes for web, continued
I have found some more about the text and video phases of the web.
Robert Young writes on NewTV about how MySpace could compete with YouTube because Murdoch owns video and video is harder to search on than text where Google has an advantage. I don't think the argument is compelling because often text is used to find the video. But the description of the web so far as mostly based on text makes a lot of sense.
Adobe seems to have gone video though. You may still be able to import text into InDesign but this has yet to be promoted in Creative Suite 3.
