Final Thoughts: My Journey with ASL

Youtube; a mixed point of view

For my class we were asked to watch at least the first 15 minutes of An anthropological introduction to YouTube by Michael Wesch.

I cannot emphasize enough how great I found his ideas, his approach and his romantic idea of how … Continue reading Youtube; a mixed point of view
