“I do not doubt the valor of your people. But the world is changing.”
So said Frodo to Boromir on the slopes of Amon Hen; and so I say to you. The people we would speak to seldom read, and when they read, it is with the focused constancy of a butterfly that flits from flower to flower. And there are, O, so very many flowers in our media meadow. I do not doubt the valor of our pens, but I do doubt the power pens alone. Some of us must learn to speak through a “hot medium.” I have begun to do this by producing videos my classes, and will begin from time to time to do it here. Behold, the video edition of my latest post.
It takes some time to put one of these together, but I will try to render some of the more promising selections from my archive in this format, and to give forthcoming essays this same treatment when I have time. This video is public on Youtube and contains fingerposts pointing back to the Orthosphere. When it gets a few brothers, I hope it will drive some traffic.
