New in 2018 – Short video-format reviews

The Long Read, they say, is a thing of the past. These days, it’s all about visuals, pictures and videos that are short enough to be taken in quickly by people in a hurry. The catch is, when you post something short, it had to have been extracted from something long. First the thinking has to be done, then it can be compacted. So, for the Short Read, look at these videos, all less than a minute long. For the thinking behind the Short Reads, go to the linked reviews.
