A piano has 88 keys.

A computer keyboard has upwards of a hundred.

And a mouse and click interface can create a nearly infinate decision tree.

But the essential understanding might be that even on the 88 key piano - humans can bring forth jazz, classical, rock, and everything in between.

No matter how simple or complicated any NLE interface gets - it can't do anything but give you tools that you have to use to create something attractive.

Editing, isn't cutting streams of data OR "telling stories" - both those are both just possibilities along a continuum of many others.

The art is in finding how to use all this and more to connect ideas, motivations and shared experiences in ways that can be shared, stored, and yes, monitized - so that users achieve the results we want.

Editing video is a lot of things. Sometimes even simple. But "simplistic" it is most definitely not.

My 2 cents anyway.
