if you want to know what the goldfish are about, just read the last bit of the post.paper a bit. it will take a lot more than then ten minutes i just gave it. so after you click the link don't bother reading the article. none of us are smart enough to get it.
here's a quote:
Viewers watching videos on a better connected computer or device have less patience for startup delay and so abandon sooner. For instance, a viewer with ﬁber broadband connectivity is 38.25% more likely to abandon sooner during startup than a similar viewer with mobile connectivity.
so if were on the old Galaxy, Nexus, iPhone or whatever we'll wait.
if were on fiberoptic cable internet we have the attention span of a goldfish (really, really short).
