You seem to be more of a videophile than most people. Your post seems to imply that being well-read and "well-versed" (In what?) makes one able to see and use those terms. It all depends on what you read, and what you are well versed in. I have two degrees and currently working toward a third one, and I have no idea what those terms are. Obviously, none of those areas has anything to do with video. I'd bet money that most Ph.Ds out there wouldn't know those terms either. You might not consider yourself one. But that won't keep from people seeing you that way. It's like being called hard core fan by someone just because I have one Star Trek DVD at home or thinking Calculus is advanced math. It's all about perceptions.
