Airtime, a Pedigreed Start-Up, Is Tested - NYTimes.com

"Bing Gordon, a board member at Airtime and a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, one of the venture capital firms that backed the company, said users tended to be fickle, impatient and difficult to dazzle.
“The average life cycle of an app is way down,” Mr. Gordon said. “People are always ready to move on to the next thing.”
In the case of Airtime, Mr. Gordon said he believed two-way video would become a more important medium over time, because it conveys emotions that a text or phone call cannot capture.
He said Mr. Parker and his team would just have to keep trying until they got it right: “They are on that journey.”"
