Readers who saw my blog yesterday would have noticed that this video has been removed from my blog. I did that for 2 reasons
a) The video automatically starts playing the advertisement just by being on the page which is awful especially when i do not want to view the video
b) the story starts automatically even if I do not want to view the video.
Is it difficult for NDTV to realize that anyone reading my blog should have the ability to decide whether they want to view it or not instead of starting it off automatically.
Seth Godin calls this Permission marketing. I do not advertise (in this case show video) unless the customer/user explicitly is interested in the same.
