Anthropology Graces YouTube

The Chronicle of Higher Education published an article yesterday about how Kansas State University anthropologist, Michael Wesch, and his students are using video blogs to highlight the impact that Web 2.0 technologies can have on human interaction. He also gave a talk at the Library of Congress on Monday detailing the importance of social media. Wesch has become somewhat of a YouTube star, with his most popular video, “A Vision of Students Today,” receiving close to 2.4 million hits. His videos are available on YouTube and at mediatedcultures.net
