Links Roundup for January 17, 2011
Here’s a roundup of links that might be of interest to fans: stories about the Catcher in the Rye sequel, video parodies and edits, more inexplicable takedowns, editable videos on iTunes and more beneath the cut!
* The New York Public Library is running the 90 Second Newbery Video Contest, which invites people to "make a video that compresses the story of a Newbery award-winning book into 90 seconds or less." Remix seems to be becoming a standard pedagogical practice.
* Lastly, Henry Jenkins is continuing to host exhibits of various kinds of remix video at his blog. Both vidders and amv-makers might be interested in this in-depth comparison between vidding and amv, and gamers might enjoy Part 1 and Part 2 of the Video and Gaming Culture segment.
We want your suggestions! If you know of an essay, video, article, event, or link you think we should know about you can submit it in three easy ways: comment on the most recent Link Roundup on LJ, IJ or DW, tag a link with "for:otw_news" on Delicious or give @OTW_News a shoutout on Twitter. Links are welcome in all languages!
Submitting a link doesn't guarantee that it will be included in a roundup post, and inclusion of a link doesn't mean that it is endorsed by the OTW.
