YouTube, Soulja Boy, and Anthropology

The head of Kansas State's Digital Ethnography project gave a speech at the Library of Congress last month. The project devotes its time to the study of YouTube and how it is used. But the speaker, Michael Wesch, does a whole lot more. He provides a very thorough discussion of what can be expected on the frontier of Web 2.0. I take these thoughts seriously, because I think the Web still has a lot to revolutionize. Even if you think vlogs are aberrant navel-gazing, this video will provide a feast of food for thought.
