An interesting point which Adrian brought up was on taxonomy. How definitions are pretty much redundant and that we should define things for what they do. I wasn’t really convinced by this argument at first, but during the tutorial Adrian brought up how we call things video and film yet they are neither of these. In a way i guess then Adrian was correct in saying having a taxonomy is pretty ridiculous. However i do believe definitions are still needed even so just for the sake of being guidelines.This all just reminds me of English class during vce where teachers always say oh the rules always have exceptions and you break them for artistic license and you are just left thinking what… Why have i been learning these rules which were kinda definitions just so i could break them. The funny thing was when we did break them the teachers never though our intention was artistic enough to warrant our inconsistency.
