Typography II - Journal Entry #13

Larry Lessig.

His comparison to the views of technology from the past and the usage and abundance of it today was really fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed his examples and explanation of modern displays of culture with the youtube videos and he really had a unique and profound understanding of technologies effect on culture and how it naturally enhances and promotes our creativity. Many thought that the "vocal chords" or the creative prowess of people of the new age would be silenced, but in fact it has done nothing more than change in format. The digital culture is still strong and in fact has greater potential then I think anyone imagined.
