Research on YouTube’s Popular Videos

I had the opportunity to speak with Jean Burgess and Joshua Green about their new book, called YouTube: Online Video and Participatory Culture. They completed a large-scale content survey of certain categories on YouTube that might be seen as “the most popular.” Here, they talk a bit about what they found and whether or not prior assumptions that have been reported about YouTube’s content lined up to the videos they examined in their sample.

LA Angel

Maybe I should have called this video “Freeway Angel.”

Midwest Gathering

I found it fascinating to see people’s comfort zones and boundaries with video making being pushed at this gathering of YouTube participants in Minneapolis.

Return to the Sad Man

Recently, I was in Montreal and luckily I had my camera when I stumbled onto this sculpture again. This time, I got to see it at night! Then later, I found him a “friend.”

Paradoxical Updates

Linguistic paradoxes are so much fun.
The screen shot at the beginning is from the Star Trek television show. It is from the episode entitled, “I, Mudd,” which first aired in 1967.

Black and Sparkly

What if an abstract painting could move?
The setting: Rotterdam. Before sunrise. On my way to the airport. Time for just a few more shots. But it’s so dark. Just one more.

Fair Use

I was fortunate to have Professor Kuhn from the School of Cinematic Arts at USC join me once again. This time we talk about fair use and how ideas about media remix are changing.
The four criteria Professor Kuhn mentioned are:
Purpose (ex. non-commercial, educational)
Nature (ex. criticism, scholarship, news, satire, teaching) Amount used (ex. use no more than is necessary to achieve goals)
Effect on Market (ex. an assessment is made of the potential harm to the market for the copyrighted work caused by the new work)
More sources on fair use: http://www.publaw.com/work.html The video is meant to be informational, not legal, in content. Specific legal questions about specific work should be directed to a legal professional.
I find Professor Kuhn’s opinions very interesting and I hope this video circulates. Pass it on!

I just couldn’t resist. Legoland is definitely worth a visit. The Lego busts you see in the video are of: Luciano Pavarotti Salvador Dali
