An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube

Michael Wesch, a pro­fes­sor of cul­tur­al anthro­pol­o­gy, has become some­thing of an inter­net phe­nom­e­non, hav­ing pro­duced two won­der­ful videos that help demys­ti­fy the world of Web 2.0. (Def­i­nite­ly check them out here and here). Now he has a new video get­ting some play. Below you can watch a talk he recent­ly gave at The Library of Con­gress, where he uses video to dis­sect the new medi­as­cape that we’re liv­ing in, and how it’s chang­ing our rela­tion­ships … for bet­ter or for worse.
