Electricity deleted distances. If forecasts about TV world, many years ago seemed to be scifi ideas, they were still miles away from today’s revolution. Since first black&white issues, TV appeared like the soul’s mirror. Sometimes damn stuff, sometimes stunning. But always fascinating.
People just waited for centuries, without conscience about it, this techno’s object, like a child, scared to go further. Since first representation in antic Rome ages, where we could see various scenes, people used to like live, concrete, realtime, sometimes finding happiness in other’s misery…We learned to be an invisible actor. Passive, but excited by.
Then times has gone. Driven by fools, the screen fever (and I might say screenS, in a exponential devices supply today), started an endless run toward what became an amazing window of the world, quiet in our sofas, sweeping distances and differences. But sometimes reshapping truth and information (each revolution has its haunted face…). Television shows us the best and…the worst. We have always to make sure we control what we do, be sure we know where is the “off” button. And consider this is a stunning evolution we can use to, for knowledge enforcement, information sharing, and entertainment. and control what we reserve to our children, being happy to do it, but in a safe way. It’s obviously a one-way communication field (all tries about feedback from viewers, in an interesting way, sustainable and safe business model has failed), which is a great advance in everywhere learning opportunity. Let’s awake these senses, let’s believe there’s a great interest in developping quality contents, and broadcast it by satellite, giving back smiles and hope to some who don’t have no more.
Television has an advance step on Web : controlling contents, and it’s probably one thing which is the most important. Not give children anything to see, like doubtful websites we can find, and keeping the target on what we search : senses, sense of having good time on a great event, and good sense to switch off light, when there’s no interest anymore…
And you, whose sense makes you react ?
