Anthropological introduction to YouTube

Posted by Martin Poulter on 18 December 2009

A genuine lecture at the US Library of Congress, this 56-minute video explains how the video-sharing site (and other social media sites) transformed the media world. Includes cats, babies and Moldovan pop, but it’s for the sake of science!

Beer, coffee, bacon and armoured pets

Posted by Martin Poulter on 18 December 2009

Matthew Inman’s distinctive, colourful cartoons as The Oatmeal are hilarious and often truly educational. A personal selection:

Dave K writes, “Not only funny – but educational too.  I just learnt a thing or two about coffee whilst laughing rather a lot.  Am I easily pleased?  Who cares – that’s just gotta be the best way to learn. “

EDIT: The ad has been taken down and we can’t find it in an archive. Apologies!

The Behemothian Potpourri

Posted by Paul Smith on 10 December 2009

This is a very amusing reworking of the mighty Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody by StSandersMisc. Very well synched, brilliantly surreal lyrics and just plain daft. I’m sure Freddy would have approved. Would probably make Brian May’s hair curl though.
