Screen Cast

term created by Jon Udell to describe a Video (Multimedia) demonstrating interaction with a piece of software. In the software world, we spend a lot of time describing how things work. To echo Michael Kinsley's lament about music and film, why should those descriptions use only text, possibly augmented with screenshots? Why don't we present, and quote from, live experiences?
