Communication in a Global World

Fogarassy and her work encapsulate the enormous changes that have taken place in the realm of communications since the onset of the internet and Superhighway.  Undeniably and asset to information flow, in her view the drawbacks of TMI, or too much information, are desperately in need of being addressed.

She began writing in longhand and still finds it the most expedient for jotting down the fleeting thoughts that may develop into into a solid form.  Unfortunately, pens and writing pads have become secondary commodities in the information revolution but fortunately they still survive.

The next tools Fogarassy learned to use evolved rapidly and now are all but forgotten    First was the manual typewriter, then the IBM Selectric two, in her view still optimal for the creative process however the following steps of correcting, revising and editing are happily are expedited.  It’s hard to imagine anyone would miss the old days of “cut and paste” performed with scissors, scotch tap and white out.  The PC and its ease in capturing fleeting thoughts, However, has created its own challenges.

First works on the computer were excruciating.  Pages and pages of words amounted to not a snippet of usable text.  The process was the equivalent of  dumping bricks, mortar and tools in a pile to a builder with a command to make a house.  Driven by professional necessity, the job got done.  Creative ingenuity in attention to design, however, was sapped by the energy needed to uncover and identify pieces of the basic structure.

Similarly, Fogarassy’s early experience as a writer striving to be recognized for her work has morphed into a new form of the age-old exclusionary experience that thins out applicants based on personal discretion.  In the old days, agents, editors and publishers filtered would-be writers by judging writing, story and prospect of audience sales.  In the internet age, getting published is as easy as turning on a computer and posting a blog.  Garnering attention has still not changed however.  The glut of voices demanding to be heard and magnified has rendered discretion unmanageable at present.  Nevertheless, basic truths have not altered and as always, the true writer brings them forward.

The profound observations of writers through the ages has survived  from the biblical scholars through Plato, through Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, all the way through Dante, Tolstoy, James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway.  Today’s writer continues the tradition.  The task now is to uncover its roots and branches within the internet glut of messages obscuring the common human need of people all over a globalizing world.
