Or he might have figured out that mixing up a medium that is extremelly weak at delivering scripted narrated content with the medium of reference is just a waste of time: he will only obtain performing inferiorly to the book medium.

Actually, these mixings happen to hide the lack of creativity. The creativity should come not from the content but from the container. Unfortunately, the container is weaker than any of its components.

Scripted narrated content is better delivered in books.
Non scripted narrated content (which does not involve a professional author) is better delivered in books.

But I understand that the necessity of making a living and providing a pretention to novelty is a big pressure.

Today, it is just much of the same soup served in different bowls, which are not even new but a mixing of older containers.
