▶ An anthropological introduction to YouTube

Youtube and how it changed the way we see each other
In June of 2008,  Michael Wesch gave the following presentation at the Library of Congress. Wesch spoke about the success of a short video he created ("Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us."), and about the reach of Youtube in general. While some of the info he presents is now out of date, it is still a good backgrounder. (Wesch is currently the coordinator for the "Peer Review of Teaching Project" at Kansas State University.)
