I’m River, I’m No Stream
So I bitched on Twitter the other day that everyone was doing the streaming thing. Then I read Keen’s post about it. I commented that I feel like an old man yelling at the kid’s to stay off my lawn. Though I may dabble in it cause I have a natural curiosity, I’m not a huge fan of it. Here’s why.
The 5 reasons this old grumpy man doesn’t like streaming.
5. Time – I get done reading a blog post in a few seconds perhaps a few minutes at most…these videos are upwards of 5 minutes usually. I don’t have that much time…if i did I would playing the damn game.
4. Playing, not Watching – I liked streaming better when it was my older brother hogging the video game system. Seriously I didn’t like watching players, I like playing.
3.Imagination – I love the printed word, and the way it sparks the imagination.
2. Planning – If I did it I would want to make it good, and not just tossed together. I need to have an idea of what I want to convey with it. This blog has a voice, and I know what it is.
1. Crap – Just A LOT of crap in the streaming world out there, and not a real good way for this old goat to navigate.
If you do the streaming thing, and enjoy it…more power to you. Right now it isn’t for me, and this will probably leave me a relic, and blogging to myself.
