"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct,
or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions,
and only lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new."
-- Niccolo Machiavelli (The Prince, 1513)

Filmmaker Bob Bryan announces the Official Launch of
" The art or practice of examining opinions or ideas logically, often by the method of question and answer. It is based on the principle that an idea or event (thesis) generates its opposite (antithesis) leading to a reconciliation of opposites (Synthesis). The general application of this principle in analysis, criticism, exposition, etc."
"We're not looking for a group of intellectual snobs and Hip-hop haters who'll try and use this forum as an opportunity to put down what they don't really understand. Rather, we're looking for open-minded communicators (educators) who are eager to involve themselves creatively, emotionally and intellectually in the complex
human drama that plays out within the world of Hip-hop. I must add however that this Review Forum will not be sanctuary for the thin-skinned Hip-hop true believer. We will be approaching Hip-hop with the comprehension of it's entertainment value, as well as,
it's Educational and Communication potential. In the end, I hope we can have some fun with it, while exposing some raw talent and daring to learn something about each other. This is all about software, programming, education and change," shares Bob.
By using the talents of other respected Educators and Librarians to review selected materials, they will have a more well-informed and trusted source for suggesting the integration of the Hip-hop Resource Materials into the school curriculum and libraries around the country. The advantage to the Hip-hop artist is that they will gain much needed media exposure and specifically crafted opinion feedback that will give them a gauge by which to draw upon when or if they decide to target their work to the highly prized and respected Educational Marketplace .
