Technological progress has suddenly made all of us “accessible”. Having different characters, backgrounds, education, memories, and languages, we all ended up in a common territory.

What do Rabelais, Carroll, Apollinaire and Einstein have in common? How visual, kinetic and audio elements combine with poetic text? What is happening with language now? Will emoticons become new punctuation marks? Why visual language, Instagram in particular, is gaining in popularity? How social networks will transform language in the nearest future?
