Awesome little film about the treatment of texting + computer screens in film, and how it has evolved.

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic."

- Carl Sagan, via Reddit

When we think of the aesthetics of speculation, very specific examples of 1970s and 1980s science fiction immediately spring to mind: illustrators Syd Mead and Chris Foss, for example. Interestingly, although many early examples look like computer-generated images, they are painted, and one can’t help but wonder if they actually influenced the look and feel of today’s computer graphics technology. Over the years the use of CGI has evolved enormously in terms of technology but not so much aesthetically.

Why do we have to limit ourselves by what we expect of ourselves? How do we go further into the unknown?
