After years of "raging against the machine," I have discovered a talent and a fondness within myself for producing art on the computer. I have developed a taste for watching some of the digital shows, such as Jimmy Neutron, and even some of the cute Flash offerings like the one about the Home for Imaginary Friends. Yet I look at alot of other computer animation today and find a certain lack of cohesiveness between the elements on the screen. I think that the very people who were displaced by the computer, who resent the machine, could bring their years of expertise to the genre and improve it. The computer is a blessing and a curse because it enables people without experience and even without talent to create a finished work.

Hello moi, your comment says quite alot. Automation has kicked many artists and craftspeople out on the street. Using a computer to create animation does raise the bar as to the question about who should be "allowed" to use it. But don't condemn the computer, it's only a tool. Cast a sterner gaze on the people who own the studios, cable networks, and soon, the internet. They control what goes into the viewers eyes and ears.
