Dr Michael Wesch and his students from the University of Kansas participated in a digital ethnography project on YouTube community in the spring of 2007 as part of their anthropology class and produced a 3-5 minute video. What would you consider the value understanding the YouTube environment and its individuals? Would it provide one with a greater understanding of the scope of human interaction? Would this be valuable to teachers and understanding the digital natives? Your comments are appreciated.
Please check this website and one of the many videos of the project.
