Paris is going to lead to a hard direction.  Paris happens the 19th
to the 24th if anyone doesn't know.  From there, the information
will flow transparently and freely.  Hopefully everyone will start

Most people without any formal knowledge or training will respond

If you don't have a fundamental knowledge of the concrete low-level
issues regarding artistic issues, you lack the language to discuss
