These days, it is very common for a website to embed YouTube videos. This often serves as a way to visually show something as opposed to simply describing it with words. In this regard, YouTube is seen as a compliment to web writing; influencing the writing process, but not necessarily replacing it. When writing for a video, one must take pacing, tone, and timing into consideration. One must make sure that writing used for a voice over is appropriately synced to the video, or it is hampering the communication process by confusing its audience. Another quality that makes writing different for video is the tone that is used. When reading print, it is hard to pick up on the nuances of inflection and tonality, whereas writing for a video is read and interpreted for you. YouTube has changed my understanding of writing because it is often times easier to show something visually than it is to write about it. Blogs that cover music are one of the best examples of this process. For example, Phish is one of my favorite bands, and with a repertoire of over 500 songs, their concerts are unique every night. It is much harder for anyone to describe a certain version of a song than it is to actually post a video of it, so Phish blogs are often times a forum to post videos and use writing to compliment them, not the other way around as previously mentioned. The future will prove that the landscape of writing is constantly changing, and someday even video will be replaced by an easier, more communicative form of writing.
