This is an interesting video because to really does challenge your thinking. Watch it and see what you think. Does this guy go too far. Is this really what we want? I like technology but some of the concepts here are out there and not for me.
Great video below, with Steven Pinker discussing the absurdity of complex language. I have been writing flat out for a few weeks now, with more writing to go, and I know how difficult it is to explain a complex concept in simple terms. But that is the job. As trainers we should be constantly trying to keep it simple so that the audience, who generally knows less, can understand and learn.
