The readings for Wednesday offer views of how YouTube and the Internet provide the opportunity for anyone to be a star - or an anti-star. Find a video on YouTube - one that you're already familiar with or something new - that has gained the creator attention (ie. lots of views and comments). What does the video contain? What is its purpose? How does the creator describe the video in the information? What are the responses like? Does the creator respond to the responses and how so?

The video can have to do with anything - from World of Warcraft freakouts to pranks or political manifestos - surf around and see what you find. I'll most likely choose some from your responses to view and discuss in class.

The Amazing Racist was a youtube video that I was introduced to a few years ago, the creator has several video's. In his first video he picks up illegal mexican's and tells them he has work for them and they jump in his truck, he then pulls up to the INS building and turns his alarm on, the illegal's take off running and the creator lays on the ground laughing. My first responce to this was, I laughed, but I'm sure a lot of people would be offended by this video. The purpose of this vidoe was only intended to make people laugh.
