The Miracles of Modern Technology

In England, as I type this, Dave McKean is shooting Mirror-Mask.

I am not in England. I am thousands of miles away.

But simply by going to the Digital Dailies website, putting in my id and password, I can bring up a menu with everything they've shot since shooting began. I can watch it play, shot by shot, scene by scene. I can listen to it. And if I try to download it in order to watch in my own time I can crash my computer in a variety of strange and interesting ways I'd never dreamed of before.

That's technology.
