I love the idea of a War On Text.

Audio and video are a more natural medium than text for most humans. 
The only reason why net content is mainly text is that it's easier for
programs to work with -- audio and video are opaque as far as programs
are concerned.  On top of that, it's a lot easier to treat text as
hypertext, and hypertext has a viral quality.
