I’ve been around for too long.  I attended a film school when editing was done with glue & razors.  The concept of a non-linear editing tool didn’t exist.

At that time laser printers were just beginning to be introduced to the point that they could be afforded.  Everybody found that with a simple word processor on a personal computer they could create printed word on paper that, at first glance, seemed professional.

Everybody could print anything they wanted.  Clutter and font proliferation was mistaken for design.

With the introduction of insanely inexpensive high-quality video and the recent drop in prices for high-powered computers and in-line editors the same thing is happening with video.  Virtually anybody can produce videos that, at first glance, seem professional.

Video production for everybody without regard to capability, capacity, or content: The Democratization of Video.
