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.

A youtube video that has gained a ton of attention is Charlie Bit My Finger Again. This video has two babies in a walker and Charlie keeps on biting the baby's finger in the back. The purpose of the video is to be funny and the video achieves this. It is so funny because usually babies cry when they feel pain but this baby just laughs and says Charlie bit me. Since this video is so funny there are many responses. Most of the responses are about how the babies are so cute. I believe the creator of the video does respond to a response by saying he has more than just this video and other people should watch them.
