Where do we go from here?
Are we heading to a post-literate world? A world in which information must be delivered at the speed of light (here, now!) and people won't read three pages of information (ref: Dan Emory's plaint about essays and responses)?
How does graphic comprehension and literacy compare with word/language comprehension and literacy in our users?
Catering to the "post-literate" only guarantees that it will arrive. All of the concern
shown on this list about preciseness of language for the sake of unambiguous
clarity is lost if text is replaced by cartoons and movie clips.
