Tech Task Two

Tech Task #2: “An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube”

As I watched the video “An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube” one thing that stood out to me was how YouTube is much more than just a website for watching and displaying videos. In fact one might title is an online community. Originally I thought of YouTube as a way for people to show and express different aspects of themselves to the world. What I have come to realize is that YouTube provides a way for individuals to socialize and connect with people from all around the globe. One concept that I truly appreciated within the video was how all it takes is one person to inspire thousands of others. I was moved by the collaboration piece, inspired by MadV, where people around the world wrote powerful words of inspiration on their hands:

                              “One World; Be Heard; Believe;

                                           You Are Not Alone; I Believe in You;

                                                         Love Yourself; Love All the People.”
