I just wanted to also note that I find these discussions fascinating. 
It's so interesting to watch different ideas about literacy and script 
emerge. For example, I've been following the discussion about facial 
expression and audience with great interest so I'd hate to lose the 
chance to observe the editing of Jack and Jill.
Best,
Erika
