The Voice123 staff loves to read the writings by venture capitalist, Fred Wilson.

Recently, he posted an article that voice talent would find quite reassuring, including Voice123 staff who work(ed) as voice talent. Please read:

Why Sound Will Be Bigger Than Video

You can watch the video below. Many of you who enjoy using SoundCloud will find it most interesting!

Quote: “Alex Ljung gave a talk at LeWeb 2011 in which he argued that sound will ultimately be bigger than video on the Internet.”

It is kind of ironic when you think about it. The Internet is re-introducing us into what makes audio so special, over 123 years after Thomas Edison created the first voice-over in 1888.

Go figure. Are we completing a cycle that will make sound the wave of the future, once again?

What do you think? Do you see audio becoming bigger than video?
