I wanted to start by speaking in French because we are in Montreal, and because I owe a debt to the program, as it is printed in French. Bi-lingualism fascinates me, and so I read the French as well as the English versions of my talk as it's given in this short form brochure that not all of you have. And I was struck by the difference, because in the English version, they speak of video cassettes as new medium; and in the French version it says video cassettes, 5 new medium.
