We are now beginning to understand that you can write with anything which can be digitized. Linguistic signs no longer have priority in communication. You can now write by stringing together provocative images, audio, and conventional written language.

Of course, you cannot necessarily spin out syllogisms in audio or video or a mixture thereof. But you can make or design unfolding meaning.
