Video email…

The NY Times: Times are changing. Before long, you won’t read memos so much as watch them.
That’s the idea behind VidiTalk and Visual Communicator, new Windows programs from VidiSolutions (www.vidisolutions.com) and Serious Magic (www.seriousmagic.com), respectively.
One is intended primarily for corporations, the other primarily for consumers. Both envision a new era of nontyped communications in which you’ll fire off video clips of yourself at your desk, captured by a little camera taped to your monitor. (full story)
My spin: Video email sounds cute and nice, but I’m not sure if there’s much use to it. Video conferencing – I get, but video email…hmm. Do I need to really see full motion video of an associate telling me something? I guess if you have it – it IS interesting and nice to see the facial expression of someone – complete with TV like videography! (However, I really don’t see this technology taking off, any time soon…do you?)
