Consider This

An interesting conundrum has been posed this morning. See 1 and 2.
With all the genius and ingenuity that this world has to offer, what do we do with it?  Or rather, how do I expend my efforts and utilize my knowledge? Just yesterday I was shown an iPhone app which records five seconds of footage and renders a missile explosion on top of the video you just recorded.  Entertaining?  Extremely. Worthwhile? Probably not.  Another example? "Adventure Time."
This blog is focused on visual effects and art as a medium, but introspectively: A medium for what? As a matter of personal principle as well as advice to colleagues and students, resolve today to determine to what end you will utilize your talents.  Just remember:
Mindless humor may be hilarious, but it's still mindless.
