Are Youtubers Revolutionizing Entertainment?

"Over the past 8 years, YouTube has given birth to an increasingly sophisticated entertainment culture that operates outside of the traditional television and film ecosystem. With humble roots in charismatic and creative people simply sharing their lives, thoughts, and humor to their webcams, YouTube entertainment has diversified and grown into tens of thousands of unique channels with millions of loyal fans and subscribers. With a new generation of viewers increasingly turning to YouTube instead of broadcast TV, a new industry is being built around personalities who have dissolved the barriers between on–screen talent and the audience, and who employ visual aesthetics that make the viewer feel as if they are a part of the creator's life. Truly, we are in a new era of entertainment, one being led by millions of young people who are equally happy to watch video on their laptop as they are on their TV."

Contents of John Peel's Record Collection to be Made Public

"One of the most revered record collections in the world – that of music legend John Peel – is to be made into an interactive online museum for the public, as part of The Space – a new experimental digital service organised and funded by the Arts Council and the BBC. ...

'It is the first step in creating an interactive online museum with access to the entire collection, which is one of the most important archives in modern music history.' (Tom Barker, Director, John Peel Centre for Creative Arts)

'The idea is to digitally recreate John's home studio and record collection, which users will be able to interact with and contribute to, whilst viewing Peel's personal notes, archive performances and new filmed interviews with musicians.' (Frank Prendergast–Eye Film and Television's Creative Director)

Sheila Ravenscroft, John Peel's wife and Patron of the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts said: 'We're very happy that we've finally found a way to make John's amazing collection available to his fans, as he would have wanted. This project is only the beginning of something very exciting'."

Star Wars Uncut: crowdsourcing Star Wars 15 seconds at a time

"Star Wars Uncut is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating new and fun experiences on the web.

In 2009, Casey became interested in using the internet as a tool for crowdsourcing user content.

Star Wars was a natural choice to explore the dynamics of community creation on the web – the response from fans has been overwhelming worldwide and the resulting movie is incredibly fun to watch."

In New Zealand the Internet is an opportunity for artists to connect with new fans across the world

"The Internet has created new opportunities for artists: new opportunities to reach fans and new opportunities to earn a living. In the past, artists like us had to reach fans through companies that relied on old technology. These companies are now being forced to find new ways of doing business but instead of embracing the Internet they're fighting it.
...
We don't endorse counterfeiting, mass duplication stores. These people hurt artists, robbing us of legitimate sales. But when an individual fan wants our work enough to go through the hassle of finding a way to pirate it online, we see that as an opportunity. It's an opportunity to meet the fan, to connect them to the artist, and ultimately for the artist to be rewarded for their work. This opportunity will be squandered in the world of restrictions, distrust, and civil rights abuses that the middlemen companies want to institutionalise."
(Nathan Torkington, The Pipi Pickers, December 2008)

MySpace: Promoting A Social Environment

"MySpace, has arguably blazed the path in the creation of a social environment. Rather than focus solely on networking, MySpace early on tried to make its site a complete 'social experience' by sponsoring real world parties and encouraging interaction within its membership. MySpace has been particularly aggressive in using music as a way to bind and organise its community. To that end, it has aggressively pursued bands to have them launch and maintain fan sites on MySpace and it has encouraged fans of bands to launch their own sites, blogs, and discussion threads about music. This emphasis on music makes tremendous sense given that music tastes are one of the key ways that young people often segment themselves. Thus, MySpace's social network is a actually a multi–dimensional experience that not only connects people who know or indirectly know each other, but links groups of people together by their interests/hobbies/passions."
