Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller fame) was quoted as saying the following:
Technology adds nothing to art. Two thousand years ago, I could tell you a story, and at any point during the story I could stop, and ask, Now do you want the hero to be kidnapped, or not? But that would, of course, have ruined the story. Part of the experience of being entertained is sitting back and plugging into someone else’s vision.
Not to sound too much like a textbook, but: Do you agree or disagree? Explain.
