This first of two Monday "show and tells" comes courtesy of my brother. Although I have already sent both videos around, I thought I'd use it as an excuse to attempt to see if I could post a link to a youtube video. I rarely go to youtube or use it, but there have been a few good sociological videos circulating as of late.
The first video is "The Machine is Us/ing Us" -- a very interesting philosophical look at the effect of the new "web" and its effect on form and content -- by the digital ethnography group at Kansas State University. Read more at their blog. Wow look at that, I think I just put the code in correctly.
Here is another great youtube contribution on Kodak called "Winds of Change." Supposedly, "This is a commercial that was produced for internal use. But it has become so popular, especially with employees, that Kodak has released it for external viewing. It demonstrates that Kodak not only understands it's changing business but also has a sense of humor." I hope that this is the case! This is hysterical. Long live schmaltz, long live Kodak.
