How is a time histogram indicator on the volume charts different from this concept of trade intensity? The time histogram indicator will help tell you how fast a range, tick, or volume bar paints. I thought it was really interesting to see what happens in under 20 seconds on a 100000 volume chart.

I think he's doing it at a very fine-grained level. He claims you need automation, fast access (he says Tradestation isn't fast enough), etc. So he must be scalping for a few ticks.

if you trade on a higher timeframe then the automation and fast access isn't necessary and I think the time histogram (which is very similar to what I had produced) is pretty good.
