Uh, where do you get off with these accusation of laziness and carelessness

Did anyone here really assert as a blanket statement "there is no difference
between film and video" ?

Because this: " Film and video are so *clearly *different " means almost
nothing to me if video is just a shorthand generalization of all the
existing and possible electronic, digital, etc imaging systems *of which the
ones we can use now (nowness, again ;-)* are just the tip of an
iceberg.... video and video are so *clearly *different... !
