Words are an essential part of media. A new world record was recently achieved in speaking words, but the story described the experience as "rambling". I'm also interesting in the upcoming Eddie Murphy film A Thousand Words (by the way, director Brian Robbins teams up with him again for this one and Meet Dave was NOT a bad movie). The title refers to the amount of words Murphy's character will be able to speak before he dies.

What would we say or do if our communication was finite? We knew the exact amount and sought to make the most of it before it ran out like cell phone minutes. What are we really saying and writing and inspiring in this life? What's it worth? Who puts a value on it and why?
