"VS creates a Beuysian mediaspace or channel for the (relative) masses in which openness and access override technical specificity.

What is important is that the VS offers a readily accessible channel for collective creation and community building with minimal toolsets, and this, while not unheard of, is a highly valuable asset in the New Media world."
