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.

POV: Guy Stuck in History Class

A video that has created a lot of laughter and attention is the video known as "POV: Guy Stuck in History Class". The purpose of this video is explain how the "average" guy acts in a class when bored. The video contains the POV, point of view, of a college student in a boring History class and we can hear all of his thoughts. This is what makes the video effective, it appeals to the viewer through comedy. The responses to this comedy are of course citations of funny quotes made during the video and just overall enjoyment of the video itself. It is a very funny video and worth watching!!
