The power of online video

Our brains are “exquisitely wired” for the medium of video, Anderson says. And the potential reach is enormous. “Today, one person speaking can be seen by millions.”

The rise of face-to-face communication
Toward the end of his talk, Chris speaks to the power of face-to-face communication and presentation. As he says, information often can be taken in faster by reading it. But there is a necessary depth and richness that is often missing. Part of the effectiveness of a presentation is the visual impact and the show and tell aspect of it, but there is more to it than that. “There’s a lot more being transferred than just words. It is in that nonverbal portion that there’s some serious magic. Somewhere hidden in the physical gestures, the vocal cadence, the facial expressions, the eye contact, the passion, and the kind of awkward British body language, the sense of how the audience are reacting…. There are hundreds of subconscious clues that go to how well you will understand and whether you are inspired.”

Revelation, a Visual Poem. from sebastien montaz-rosset on Vimeo.

“The heat and the softness of the sunshine
The peace and the rawness of the storms and the cold.
The motion and the rhythm and the ebb and the flow
Of the tides and the wind
Of this glorious weather all around”
