Vine: 6-second Videos

I’m not exactly up-to-date on the latest in anything, so I just learned about Vine, Twitter’s six-second video app. Now there’s an idea! 6 seconds.I do find it a bit confusing in that it doesn’t start and stop, but loops back and starts over at the end. 2 things I just learned:

1. Click on it to stop it.

2. Click on speaker @ top left to activate sound.

Seems like a powerful new means of communication. Grab those short attention spans! Info here. Vine blog here.

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.

    How short are the attention spans? Instagram added a video feature yesterday that allows 15 sec videos. Is that too long? Or 250% more to tell a story.
