Read write world went to read only world - the artistic word is to revive the read write culture. Animate music video take from television and reused with tracks. Technique had been democratized the tools of creativity have become speech how our kids think and how they speak growing debate about the sides - one side being able to take about any content that has copy rite to take it down. The kids of the culture have a growing copy rite considerations and believe the law is just in the way. The balance -- looking first to government but it failed because the courts are to passive but more the economy of influence governs how the government functions. We need a solution that is private . This solution legalizes what it mean to be young again. Competition achieve some form of balance. We need 2 types of changes, that artist and creator embrace the idea that their work can be down freely. And second the business that are pushing out the read and write culture need to embrace this culture and they are able to grow. More free can compete with less free. BMI teaches us that artist choice is the key to advancing new technologies. Kids culture - the kids are different from us - technology has made us different cant kill technology can not stop the kids but need to encourage the correct response to culture and to law that is respectful. Do better allowing kids to know what the law is and encourage creativity but not at the price of the law. I agree with Larry in his terms of this generartion and the way we interpret the law. Because we are now seeing parents use free will and choice children of the age are also taking laws and ruls into their own hands and allowing for the rules to not affect what happens or how the young people act. With design and creating there is a fine line between creating and copying and the redoing of someones work hurts the overall aspect of design.

Videos off of GOOD website
The State of the Planet: The background music goes along with the text. helps you move through the screen as well as speaking to you as well. not to complicated but still interesting, and esay to follow. The graphics also transition well from different concepts to create a flowing composition
Stroke, a silent killer of women: The graphics are easy to follow and flow through the page the type doesn’t compete with the imagery instead it complements the imagery. The type is also placed throughout to help fills gaps and also give meaning to the imagery. Different angles of imagery and type also help create a unique and different composition
Youth Movement: The info graphic does a good job and piling a lot of information in a interesting format. The way in which the type is placed among the graphics help simplify the composition and also bring a flow throughout the composition. The hierarchy is also needed within the type of headers and subheads to allow the viewer to be easily helped along what he/she is looking at.
Pledge to do good: Very interesting in the way that the interaction and graphics work with the concept of this info graphic. The information is easy to following and read. As well as there is a theme to how the colors are organized and the composition is placed. I do not like how balanced the composition is however with the giant chart and the pie graph I wish the chart was smaller and as you clicked on a piece that category got bigger to be able to see the numbers but still make it visually unbalanced and interesting
The timber trade: This info graphic is very complete it its design yet has a very aesthetic feel. The way in which the lines move and interact and the colors that are involved help guide the eye through what is trying to be shown. The image was most visually interesting for me in the way the lines created shapes and styles with in the forms.
Which city is best for biking: has a quick interlude and info graphic to move you through the image and be able to share all of the needed information that flows through the graphic. The ending however is funky in the way that it just cuts off. The way that type is placed on the composition also has a nice feel of hierarchy.
Lobbying: this video is made perfect for its audience, the children. The animation is easy and yet flows well throughout the composition. This Movie could also be done with type only and the words of the song. There is a easy flow between transitions that has a natural non jerky flow throughout the composition.
Subways: Has a cohesive feel of old retro game. The choppiness of the video works well with the style of how the intention of the film was created. The additive music is a little distracting from the film. Different technique to show information graphics and relate an interactive video to an audience
I have tried to educate, if I have not succeeded all together, I have certainly educated my self about these questions and also about these wonderful human beings that are America. Just remember who you are, you are Americans. Your forbearers found a wilderness and they began to converted into a fair land with only three weapons, with a bible an axe and a plow. Nothing stayed them, neither the perils of death, nor wounds, nor savaged mountains, nor wide rivers, nor the unknown into which they plunged. They were of every racial stoke and religious faith, and each brought something of the old country to the new country and different though they were they became one. This is our heritage and this our true glory we are a people I tell you, that is just beginning its high adventure on this continent. It is a adventure in which young, though we are, we have done this. Our people have had more happiness and prosperity over a wider area, for a longer time, then man have ever had since they began to live in ordinate societies 4,000 years ago. Since we have come so far, who shall be ration enough to set limits on our future progress? Who shall say that since we have gone so far we can go no farther? Who shall say that the American dream is ended? For my self I believe that all we have done upon this continent is but a prelude to a future in which we shall become not only a bigger people, but also wiser people, a better people, an even a greater people. I believe in which we may achieve not only a higher standard of living, but also a higher standard of life. Never forget this there is little we Americans can not do if only we can imagine ourselves wanting to do it. Power alone is not enough, nor is faith alone equal to the task, the future is to those who take it. We shall strike off the shackles that still bind the United States. It is the duty of leaders to lead, of the creative to create of the daring to do. The free world expects leadership of us, its fate in our fate depends upon our leadership. The life or death issue of war or peace hangs upon it. We are 155 million strong. We are industrious, inventive, restless, with the fires that burn within us. We are free striding people with a confident free swinging stride that marks the American every where he goes upon this earth. We are conquers of time and distance. We have explored the awful jungles of matter and emerged with the powers of the exploding sun. Our cause is just. Our heart is high and let us then, I say, press forward toward the new world that we can create in the name of America and of suffering humanity still in chains. Now you say words, beautiful words, but how do we do all of this with a staggering budget of heavy taxes surrounded by the communist menace and feeble Europe, Asia in ferment, our boys in war, training for war. Well I say that nothing is easy, and the best things are the hardest, but consider what was done at valley forge, what was done in the dark days of destruction and disaster in the civil war in the two world wars. When the very survival of western civilization trembled and in the depression. There is nothing new, only different, and our troubles all our immense difficulties now and in the future can I say be solved if we have the will, the courage, the boldness to face them, face them squarely, and to used senica phrased man is more then a rational animal and invoking the guidance of providence. Rational man animated by the destiny of greatness can think, and can act, and can do greatly, thank you.
