Medieval Help Desk

I first saw this video a few years ago (under which circumstance I cannot recall). But considering what I've been blogging about here for the past week, it's pertinent once more. As Clay Shirky indicates in his essay "Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable," the newspaper business is undergoing right now a revolution akin to when the printing press arrived. Seeing this IT help guy assist the monk struggling with the transition from scroll to book is hilarious, but at the same time telling of the struggles we're seeing in the print-t0-web platform today. Enjoy.
