Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors

I really enjoy this video both for what it is and as a teaching tool. There’s a weird oscillation in new media studies where some people are stuck in the 1990s and treat the internet as some kind of immaterial, ephemeral space, and on the other end there are people who understand it purely as a physical and geopolitical phenomenon. I find myself in the middle of that, and I think this video does a great job of impressing the seriousness of the material on the viewer while also letting the immaterial weirdness float on top of it all.

In any case, good video, show it to people.
