Forbes has a special report on communication. With among others Chomsky interviewed on language, and Jane Goodall as well. Cerf on the internet, and Kurt Vonnegut on telling a story:

[R]eading it is actually quite difficult–I mean it is as hard as learning to read music, and it’s a remarkable skill. And if you take ink on paper and make people respond to it, they themselves are going to have to be performers. It’s like arriving at a concert hall and being handed a violin, and you’re expected to play. That’s what we expect readers to do, perform themselves, because they’re half of the performance.

    “All of the arts (..) are practical jokes” is ook een goeie. ’t Is waar ook nog. Ik lach wat af ook.
