I believe reading will become almost obsolete in the next 10-30 years, because people find watching and listening more enjoyable.
Writing is dead, videos will rise and take over the planet.
I have been Travel Blogging now for about 9 years, and January 1, 2011 HoboTraveler.com will be 12 years old.
Writing is the best medium for liars.
Videos is the best medium for honest people.
Making a video is easier than before, I think it is time to replace writing with videos.
How do you know when a travel writer is lying?
--- do not ask the question, you need to assume it 100 percent of the time.
I am always trying to invent, derive, understand, or think of methods to prove the truth of something, to stop or minimize the lies around me.
Our company, HoboTraveler.com has put up 100 new "Live Abroad" cities, and the dream and hope is that people living in each of these cities will write about them. However, how to stop the deluge of misrepresentation and lies fabricated by the average person on the Internet by writing? One possible solution is to require a video that is recorded in one session, no stopping and starting, just one continuous video recording of the person or subject.
Videos can lie too, but it becomes increasingly complicate, paid actors or actresses often misrepresent the truth. However, real people, with all their normal problems would not be able to hide the truth.
