documentary about the increasing accessibility of software, hardware, and products that have the ability to produce professional quality music, art, and film pretty sure it’s available for download on their site http://www.presspauseplay.com/

here is the actual description of the film 

"The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era."

As designers, we tend to have an affinity for designs (and their creators) of the past. They’re great sources of unique inspiration—regardless of what medium or discipline we’re working in—that give a peak into the valued visual aesthetics of yesteryear.

This is one of my favorite design related videos from TED. Don Norman, who I hear taught Iowa State, gives a wonderful talk on his viewpoint of design and the need for “fun.”

Wonderful stuff.
