I expect this is a hard thing to to get right.

I also found that the workspaces were going by too quickly for me to
read and digest the first time. My reaction was to replay the video a
few times, stopping to read the workspaces. That is a lot different
from my usual reaction to on-line videos, which is to get bored part
way through the video, and never watch the rest.

If your intention was to hook my interest and get me to look and
think twice, then it worked.
