Short Thought About Cultural Productivity

No full post this week, sorry, but I am working on something a bit different for next week.

I will give this little though infection though.

Here is a fascinating video about Yogi bear’s collar, and the Hanna Barbera cartoon factory. It is a great example of how innovation in the cultural sector has in the past lead to great increases in productivity and cultural output, a trend continues in some ways today.

It is intriguing to think about what might happen as this continues on into the future. One day it may be even possible for a computer to generate an animated film version of any story… What would the cultural landscape look like if computer aided story telling can enable a single person create a full film?
