After I published an interview with the excellent blogger over at “And Then There’s Physics” there were some brief and exceptionally useful exchanges with a few people (some more than others), on the D word… I promised a video. Voila.

Update: 17th March. This John Russell guy clearly… is right. Sigh. #schoolboyerrors
While I agree with the points it was trying to make, unfortunately it wasn’t much good as a video. Why? Well it broke rule number 1, which is something every communicator should understand. Rule number 1 is: “when on-screen text is used, it should always match the narration”. In other words, the narrator should be repeating any text that appears on screen (or the text should echo the narration). The human mind cannot comfortably read text and listen to different narration: either the ears of the eyes will command most attention and the other will be missed. Even if the text and narration are both making the same point, if they use different words then they will pull against one another.
