Through Deaf Eyes

This is a must watch:

A larger video can be seen here. I would recommend that you download it via Google Video Player (click onto the download button in the right column). That way you can watch it full screen. It is 2 hours, I don't want you to get cross eyed! Watch it soon, as there is a possibility it could be pulled.

The original documentary was shown by PBS, in the States. The dvd and book can be pre-ordered from here.

Update: As predicted this video has now been pulled. Those people wise enough will have downloaded a copy. So you're out of luck in the meantime, unless of course someone uploads the video someplace else (the net is a big place).

A bad move on the companies' part, some might think an odd thing to say. Such acts can have a negative impact on sales. Had this video not been on the net, I would not have found out about it, as many other people. Its a marketing tool, and makes me want to go ahead and buy the dvd. Same concept as those who put their work on the net electronically such as Cory Doctorow and Tom Reynolds. Through making it free, you force people to care about your product and the fact you want to spread ideas behind it. Wanting to be possessive about these, is a turn off. The important thing about this video, is the ideas and understanding get to as many people as possible. Make it free. Copyright hinders.
