yep. this is where I'd agree with Mr Jobs. Video is sedentary and a
portable video watching device isn't a mass consumer item. shooting
video is. witness digital cameras, and now video on your phone. lots
shoot stuff here, but no one is really using their phone as a viewing
platform. we do that elsewhere (eg in the system you've just
described). 🙂

and in answer to Jay's question about content, it isn't just about
narrating. imagine you're at an event (protest, meeting, classroom) you
can now shoot and publish instantly. this has enormous implications
(can anyone say Rodney King?).
