: There's a very big difference between not having learned to do something and being incapable. There's a point where most people can't drive cars, but they don't think that they're incapable of it. I can't play the piano but I'm not incapable of it; I just haven't done it.
: Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value. It is a process; it's not random.
There is pseudo hope in the form of interactive interfaces (as opposed to the last 60yrs of one way TV & print) but this disregards tactile feedback and it's importance in our experience. And with the level of OCD in this country for risk elimination and public liability, more and more experiences at festivals, events even play grounds, are this kind of "safe" pseudo interaction. Of course we want the best, safest world for our kids but to quote Marlin from the movie Nemo- "I promised I'd never let anything happen to him" (referring to Nemo) to which Dory responds- “that's a weird thing to promise because then nothing could ever happen.” We've been led to a point of paranoia where faux experience is chosen over genuine experiences with managed risks.

: Be wary of false
dichotomies. The human cultural
jungle should be as varied and plural
as the Amazonian rainforest. We are
all richer for biodiversity. We may
decide that a puma is worth more to
us than a caterpillar, but surely we
can agree that the habitat is all the
better for being able to sustain each.
Monocultures are uninhabitably dull
and end as deserts.- The Fry Chronicals
