Making MediaCommons

November 15, 2006

Over at Planned Obsolescence, Kathleen Fitzpatrick has put out a call for contributions to making MediaCommons, the Institute for the Future of the Book’s latest project. There’s lots of ideas here, not least In Media Res, initially described, and then hastily retracted, as ‘YouTube for Scholars’. Every week, scholars upload media clips and an accompanying criticism, creating a discussion around media that goes somewhat further than the usual video sharing flame wars. Go join the debate.
