Mark, there are a LOT of ways in which this could potentially have impact.

1. As Matt said, if there becomes a somewhat standard strategy for creating new condition hashtags, or if they already exist even if not yet heavily used, it could possible help to diminish that awkward start-up period in which many micro-communities are trying to do the same thing, and don't know about each other. There are advantages to that, and this doesn't preclude the creation of microcommunities, but it does make it easier to immediately engage with others.

From the educational point of view, we've been having to argue the case for longer videos with our campus media managers. They've expressed a desire to gradually shift the campus into a model that restricts all public video content to 3 minutes or less. I was, naturally, HORRIFIED. I am a firm believer in "match the tool to the task", an idea that naturally extends itself to "match the medium to the audience", which necessitates understanding that audiences have different purposes!
