Russ is on to something here. Portable how-to videos will be a huge business. It’s an industry waiting to happen.
The problem with most how-to videos is that you often watch them in one place and use their lessons in another. But videos are often most useful when you can pause, scrub back, and resume. It’s a real hassle trying to fix the lawnmower when the “How to fix the lawnmower” video is in the family room.
The new iPod with video playback will usher in a new era of mini how-tos that will put DIYers at a major advantage. Now you can take mini how-to movies with you — to the garage, to the yard, to the basement, to the roof, to the studio. Same applies to exercise videos — take your Billy Blanks with you to the gym or the park.
I wonder who’s going to jump on this first. Imagine professionally produced mini how-to videos on iTunes. Indie how-tos as well. Seems like a great place for Make to blaze a trail.
