BIG QUESTIONS: A video update

You may remember that I'm in the process of beating the e-drum for a new Web video project called BIG QUESTIONS. It's an experiment in crowdsourcing the costs of a new enterprise, and in a new kind of journalism for the Web, and so far the results have been encouraging.

In the course of talking to people about the series, though, I've been struck by the number who seem a little hazy on the concept, as explicated in my original pitch video.

So I thought it might be useful to draw an illustration in contrast. Today's installment in an ongoing series of video updates shows the concept of the Big Question by examining one that's decidedly small: Coffee or tea?

Watch now, won't you, as I tackle this ancient conundrum before your very eyes. And visit the project page at Kickstarter for more information.
