Just curious, how do you guys view glowstringing?

couple questions to focus/start off the discussion:

Is glowstringing and poi one and the same or different? If it's different then how do you define glowstringing and seperate the two?

Do glowstringers have a unique set of moves outside of traditional poi moves?

Should the difference in each tool/medium (glowstring vs sock poi vs fire poi) be emphasized? Or should all of them be spun the same way?

How do you define/develop style and originality in poi? Should the same principles of style and originality be applied to glowstringing? Or can glowstringing have their own principles and methodologies?

Are there differences in cultural background and philosophy between poi and glowstringing?

And people wonder why countries don't get along.....

Pardon my confusion, but have I got this right?

In order to be a glowstringer you have to spin the right toys,,in the right way,,while dancing in the right style, to the right music.

Sounds pretty exclusive

I'm with Coleman on the Dervishly Yers / Kael comparison. I see a few of Nick's elements in Kael's videos, like the variation in spinning speed and a few of the turns but that's about it. They're both dramatically different styles,,and I like both of 'em.

I finally got to watch a vid of eric doing liquid, and it aint half-bad.

After thinking about yo-yo, juggling, hoop and all, Ive decided that for me its all just dancing with props.
