Nonverbal communication


Roger Ebert passed away last month after a long fight with cancer. I recently heard a TED talk that he did February 2011. It is an inspiration to hear him communicate via Alex, his digital technology, and to see how his non-verbal, visual communication conveyed volumes. He can use verbal with his words, and visual, but is unable to use vocal. This is an excellent example of how communication is often more visual than verbal.
