A Cultural Anthropologist and an analysis of YouTube
Networked individualism, context collapse, new masks and new identities, hyper self-awareness, cultural inversion.
What’s all this about? In general, the mediascape. In particular, YouTube. A seriously playful culture.
A cultural remix in a den of thieves.
For hard core only. A cultural anthropologist looks at YouTube and the YouTube community.
