Agreed. Video plus screen capture would be nice, but video of the
presenter and a copy of their slides to follow along with works pretty
damn well for me.
As far as trying to combine the two and sleek up the experience,
Columbia's SOA has a nice setup for this on their site (see
http://www.columbia.edu/itc/soa/dmc/cory_arcangel/) for example).
There are some glitches in the timing, though, and I'm just not sure
it's worth the extra effort.
PS In a similar vein, when I don't have separately available slides to
follow along with, I find many of the Google TechTalks annoying. It's
a lot of watching some not-terribly-handsome person refer to things I
can't see. Having both video and slides is key.
