I have often thought hard about trying to explain things better via
animations, and on more than one occasion tried to find an animator
who could turn this old 8m talk from "people as packets" into "unruly
animals as packets".


But that requires both money and time, and I've usually had neither.
Grant money would be nice for a whole string of educational videos,
but not being part of the MICA complex has made that difficult. If I
ever get caught up on bills, and some other pressing problems, perhaps
we could do a kickstarter campaign to get some things animated.
