I'm in the older generation that still uses a fountain pen (in real life AND Second Life LOL), but I'm watching the way multi-media— with its integrated text, music and graphics—is becoming a fluid language for the younger generation. Check out this new Obama video "Vote for Hope" made by Ursa Minor Arts + Media and spiritual hip-hop artist, MC YOGI! It's a new chapter in political communications. It charicatures, exaggerates, and poeticizes, and in the process crafts a compelling story arc that paints a VERY fresh story about what people, process and patriotism can mean. It spoke to me! We should all get involved, on whatever side or for whatever candidate you feel represents you. That is, I believe, our real hope.
