Malcolm Gladwell: Story Teller
Here's more from the person that is becoming my favorite story teller. I'll bet opinions about this particular topic and Gladwell's conclusion are all over the map.

My attention is on Gladwell as a storyteller. I don't know whether he spent 10,000 hours practicing story-telling in person, or whether all of his time as a writer counts toward his on-stage story telling. Watch the 27-minute video to see what I am talking about.
I ran into this video because I am uploading my first two video notes to Microsoft Soapbox. Soapbox takes freakin' forever to process videos before they become available for video. The post-processing-massaging-transcoding-whatever takes longer than the uploads which take almost as long as it takes to store the single, large Windows Media Video files out of Windows Movie Editor. So, while I was cracking peanut shells and drumming my fingers on my desk, I watch this video that showed up as popular on Soapbox. One of mine is now ready for viewing (after almost 3 hours), so I will now, as is completely predictable for me, go review it.
