I think Richard Benson's video (thanks to Gary, in his comment on the previous post, for alerting me to its existence) is going to finally push me into getting cable for my internet. I stuck with dialup far long than I should have, and I've been on DSL ever since. But I can't watch this. Start, stop, load, start, stop, load, end, switch, start, stop, load, start...crazy-making.
Why can't I just buy this on DVD? I want to buy this on DVD. Richard Benson, are you listening?
But I've got to watch that. Yum, yum. I love prints, love printmakers, loved the book, and, actually, I quite like interesting lectures even when I'm not interested in the subject, and, in this case, I am interested in the subject.
In a related point, here's my suggestion to digital photographers thinking about long-term preservation: easy solution. Just make prints*, and preserve those**. Done and done.
*Like you should be doing anyway

Featured Comments from:
Geoff Wittig: "Fabulous stuff. Benson's book is near my desk, and I refer to it constantly when I'm studying various kinds of prints. It works fine on my DSL, but I would love to have a DVD version because it's so good, and on-line content is so very often here today and gone tomorrow."
Michael Hultström: "I hate you. That's eight hours of video, and I have work to do."
Gordon Coale: "I just finished the entire thing. Incredible and inspirational. I've got some printing to do. First I need to order the book! Tomorrow I print."
