Do yourself a favour and take some time to watch Professor Michael Wesch’s brilliant presentation to the Library of Congress, June 23, 2008. The video is 55 minutes long, but is an excellent backgrounder to social media, user-generated content, and online communities through the lens of anthropology.
This will be required viewing for my students.
Spectacular. I’m going to use this video with my Contemporary Issues class. Thanks for sharing.
Wow…I’ve just watched the first 10 minutes and I can’t put it down. Thanks for posting it, Alec. Just as Wendy said, I’m going to definitely use this!

Thanks for posting this Alec! I really enjoyed this presentation while laughing and gaining some valuable insights. He tied together so many things that we briefly touched on in our ECMP class this past spring. I definitely had more than a few ‘aha’ moments!
