I hate video blogs

And most audio posts too. Example: Slate V. I keep seeing rss headlines for Slate articles I think I’d like to read but turn out to be videos. I don’t want to load a video, or put my headphones on just to see something I may or may not be interested in. You can scan video or audio the way you scan text. I think Seth Godin blogged some time ago about this being the reason vBlogs and podcasts will not supplant text. But vblogs are popping up everywhere, and that’s annoying.
