Mediated Culture ~ Saturday, May 10, 2008

My friend Rob and I have been enjoying a lengthy and wide-ranging email correspondence.  He sent me this link in one of his recent emails.  


I thought the first video (above) the most fascinating and widely-applied, in part because of the ideas it expresses, and in part because of the way it expresses them.  The concepts behind what is shown are complex and nuanced in implication, and I thought it amazing that they could be expressed so eloquently and with such compactness in just a few minutes.

The second video (above) is more specific and applies to a whole re-ordering of the way we look at research and cataloguing in a virtual world. 

The third (found at this link) was an interesting statement on the status of the classroom and the interaction of people.  

The fourth I found to be the most simplistic and the least powerful of them.  Interesting, but not quite as nuanced, complex and well-constructed.  The message seemed a little reductive and didn't account for some of the freaky things that show up on you tube as well as the good.
