The Printing Press and Impacts

The following is a video on the impact of Johannes Gutenberg’s Printing Press.

It outlines a brief description of printing and movable type, and then discusses the impact of the press in three areas: the expansion of literacy, the consistency of language, and the change to education. I experimented with my own version of animation at the beginning and although not I find it rudimentary looking, I know I will improve each type. In addition, I also now recognize that youtube takes a really, really long time for upload. This video? About 27 hours, infuriating me, but also provided a great learning lesson. Finish early so you can upload early.

Thanks and enjoy the show.
