Thought For the Day: The Lingua Franca of Our Day Is Video and Sound

“‘Writing’ is the Latin of our times. The modern language of the people is video and sound.” – Lawrence Lessig, professor and political activist (b. 3 Jun 1961)

I hope he is wrong.  Then again, I can see why he would say this.  Look at the deep influences our video images have made in influencing policies and our daily lives.  From cat videos making us smile to documentaries making us think, there is much power in these media.  It cannot be denied.
