Welcome to Anthro Vlog!

This is a research site that is used to collect and analyze information on today’s digital participation. I hope to promote an exchange of ideas about the use of media such as video sharing and what it can accomplish socially, artistically, technically, and personally for online participants.

The purpose of the video blog is threefold:

1) To provide a platform for me to participate in the video blogging community, experiment wiht tools, and learn how to video blog

2) To promote an exchange of ideas between myself, video bloggers, media makers, and anyone interested in learning about digital media production, sharing, and reception

3) To promote greater understanding and awareness about other people, their experiences, and the world in general.

Please note that any materials or comments posted on this site may be used for research purposes and may inform academic analysis in journal articles, information posted on other Internet sites, reports, conference presentations, and classroom materials. Children under 18 are not allowed to post to this site. Any material not deemed suitable to the research project will be removed at the researcher’s discretion.

The site is used as part of a MacArthur-funded Digital Youth study which is being conducted by the University of Southern California and the University of California, Berkeley. The study examines how people use digital technologies such as such as video, blogs, video/music production tools, video sharing sites such as YouTube and blipTV, discussion boards, Internet messaging, and computer games. We are trying to understand what is important and interesting about using digital technologies. We hope to take what we learn to consider how new online environments might be designed and how education and schools might make use of new technologies and online environments.

      Children under 18 are not allowed to post to this site.

      I understand *why* you would prefer minors not post to the site; they cannot consent to being studied, after all, but how would you actually *prevent* it?

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more secure.
    Do you have any solutions?
