The Writing of Light

After two sessions with Marco Torres sandwiched around a breakout group discussion and a department meeting in which we gave a brief overview of Web 2.0 and then turned the teachers loose to play with the new toys we had just showed them, I'm pretty much on information overload. It's going to take me a couple of days to synthesize everything that was going on today, and so I'm feeling the urge to simplify. And maybe, after 14 hours of going straight at it, to sleep. So here's one single pregnant idea, mentioned in passing by Marco in his workshop on the basics of film editing, with an illustration of the concept in the form of a photograph which appeared in my Google Reader inbox today, a recent Flickr posting from Flemming Gade.

"Photography is the writing of light."
