I am creating an advertising DVD for some Palm Pilot software and plan to make a DVD to market it. How long can I make the video without boring the viewers into oblivion. Of course, assume my video quality is as fascinating as the opening scene of the first Gulf War. Still, people will eventually want to get at their popcorn. Is there a magic number, perhaps related to Fibonacci?

How about a C++ programming video without a software engineer?
C’mon Hank – There are way too many folks are doing C++ development with only a "Teach Yourself C++ in 24 Hours" background now anyway! 😯
