That was fucking brilliant... I haven't seen any of the rest of your work, nor do I really no quite what spawned this so-called war on text but I loved your response...

Brilliant, fucking brilliant mate!

Well done.

A "war" on text will be equally effective as any war, but as with any war, important, unintended issues are considered and learned.

Text has limits to human understanding that video and audio exceed and in a faceoff, a/v will win if communication is the standard by which we judge.

Welcome to the vlogosphere - nice to meet you.

i am a filmmaker and lover, but i am pretty sure i disagree that a/v would be text in communication. the fact that an individual can record thought and present it in a completely direct and singularly interpretable (potentially) way through text is pretty strong muscle on its side, methinks. i would agree that a/v is a better conveyor of, and presenter of pure invention/intention/emotion. but it cannot describe the way text can, though it can allow one to relate on a deeper level.

i guess in the end i'm rather torn.

conscientious assenter - picture is worth a thousand words, and moving pictures worth more still. sometimes though, it's that journey to the end of a page that's worth a million pictures.

a lovely piece...
