I listened to a celebration of comic poet, Hovis Presley over lunch and my first thought was to reach for a YouTube clip which is exactly what I’ve served up today. I’m getting gradually more interested in the YouTube phenomenon as it enters more and more into public discourse and everyday conversation. This blog contrasts the anarchic nature of its archive with the popularity of the entertainment that it provides. Although it doesn’t quite deliver on developing community it certainly gets around – it’s so easy to embed the clips, so quotable and so unlike traditional media.
