Text-Based Content: Inflection Point [Audio]


This will probably be my shortest blog post produced to date. And there’s a really good reason for that. You see, I don’t know whether we’re at an inflection point overall, or I am personally at an inflection point of not wanting to consume as much text-based content as I used to.

    Nick, really interesting insight, thanks for sharing. The text onslaught is overwhelming in this digital age – I like the audio alternative. It does get me thinking sometimes of a saying I’ve heard “when in doubt, do both”. I can imagine a world where visitors are given options of text *and* audio.

  • Thanks Jake! That’s a really good point. It comes down to offering the choice.
