When there is communication without need for communication, merely so that someone may earn the social and intellectual prestige of becoming a priest of communication, the quality and communicative value of the message drop like a plummet.

But creating—or even just watching others create, or observing the fruits of their labor—provides me endless pleasure and opportunity for growth.
