As everyone, even the ape creatures of the Indus and the mold under my sink, is probably aware, there is a whole lot of information on the web about everyone. Some of it is user generated, like our Facebook status updates, the comments we leave on news stories, YouTube videos and blog posts, and our tweets, and for the most part we know about that and have some control over it.

However, can video alone really be the best way to get our news?
