Wesch 8/31

  1. 1. Key Concepts in Wesch
  2. 2. Participatory Culture <ul><li>User filtering (everyday people influence what gets noticed…youtube rating, digg, reddit) </li></ul><ul><li>User Organization / Folksonomy (everyday people “tag” and organize content) </li></ul><ul><li>User-Generated Content (media composed by “amateurs”—usually for free) </li></ul><ul><li>Remix (sampling and recombining existing popular texts to make a new text) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Cultural Tensions on YouTube <ul><li>Individual vs. Community </li></ul><ul><li>Anonymity vs. Self-Disclosure </li></ul><ul><li>Private vs. Public </li></ul><ul><li>Commercialization vs. Authenticity </li></ul>
  4. 4. Networked Individualism <ul><li>Mobile technologies emphasize person-to </li></ul><ul><li>person connections beyond the bounds of local </li></ul><ul><li>places (Wellman) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Context Collapse <ul><li>“ The problem is not lack of context. It is context </li></ul><ul><li>collapse: an infinite number of contexts collapsing </li></ul><ul><li>upon one another into that single moment of </li></ul><ul><li>recording. The images, actions, and words captured </li></ul><ul><li>by the lens at any moment can be transported to </li></ul><ul><li>anywhere on the planet and preserved (the </li></ul><ul><li>performer must assume) for all time. The little glass </li></ul><ul><li>lens becomes the gateway to a blackhole sucking all </li></ul><ul><li>of time and space – virtually all possible contexts – </li></ul><ul><li>in upon itself.” (Wesch http://mediatedcultures.net / </li></ul><ul><li>ksudigg/?p=183) </li></ul>
