Hello all, my name is Zach Lapidus, I am a student at Ithaca College. In a posting
on Oct. 16th Francisco Torres responded to the thread with the subject
"sustenance" and wrote that "Final Cut killed editing as a trade". I am just about to
graduate and I am interested in becoming a professional editor. With that in mind I
would like to hear any other opinions on the topic of the death of editing. Also, I
am going to be leading a group discussion on editing being a lost trade and would
appreciate any advice anyone would be able to offer that I could use to help steer
the conversation. Thank You. - Zach Lapidus
