…the more digital worlds become “like” the real world per se as it is, the more the need for articulate expression of focused attention is required, demanded in fact, precisely by those life-like digital worlds. The technique for expressing focused attention clearly, persists, and will persist. But that is not enough. The technique MUST evolve.
It’s been common for decades now to promote the idea that models (of any kind) should stand on their own, with the facility for articulating focused attention removed, abandoned. This is the single most destructive idea in this industry of the last 30 years. Continuing to perpetuate it today is fundamentally counterproductive. Counterproductive, and self-defeating.
