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.

David After Dentist

I picked the video "David After Dentist." David a 7 year old boy had to go to the dentist to get a tooth removed. Once David woke up from the anastasia this video was taped by his father outside the dentist office . This video was strictly created for entertainment. Most of the viewers raved about how hilarious it was and that every time they watch it they lose it.
