away. laptop computers, let alone today's tablets an ultrathins, did not exist. when george bush became president, there was no facebook. if youtube were a child, it would barely be out of kindergarten. the ipod is just a teenager. iphone and ipad still in diapers, figure to release speaking. they are so new yet so ubiquitous that a whole generation can hardly imagine life without digital helpmates. >> it has become so omnipresent. one little one that comes out and you think, we don't really need that. two weeks later you are using it all the time. >> our advanced technology provides us with many benefits. but it also puts us at risk of losing things that we doubt it. with digital maps at the fingertips, people will lose their ability to find their way around on 8 it. film cameras, records, and cd's are headed for extinction. newspapers are on their way out. books made of paper on the endangered list. >> i actually did not read -- did read a physical book recently and it was strange to go back when you do not have a button to press. >> personal interactions often replaced by online subs

, george lucas or steven spielberg. schrader: my theory is that the reason orson welles scared hollywood to death is because he inserted his personality in the most... elephantine, multi-talented way into cinema and it was just terrifying to see that much personality. the directors who had a style worked in certain channels-- the hitchcock style, the sturges style the ford style, the lubitsch style. there was a way they did it but they were working in the corporate conglomerate way. uh, orson welles was saying, "screw all of this. i'm going to reinvent movies." and, well, they got rid of him. and then, you know, with the nouvelle vague and then with bertolucci finally... this has now taken root in hollywood which is why hollywood is so anxious and confused at the moment because they know they have to give money to spike lee and to quentin tarantino and they don't like that fact. eventually they can co-opt them, hopefully. or make money off of them and hold their nose while they do it. uh, now the question i'm trying to ask is are these guys really mavericks or has hollywood sty
