Origins of this content
I began speaking publicly about LFYT in 2007, always to academics, but in a variety of disciplines (media studies, rhetoric, communications, art, library science, digital humanities). I attempted to push my public speaking about the course, and YouTube, in ways that mimicked the formal provocations of the course and YouTube. Thus, I performed some or all of my critique of YouTube on YouTube and in its vernaculars. This slogan was made for the conclusion of a talk I gave about the writing and publishing challenges of this project at the Animating Archives conference at Brown in 2009.
Digital media and learning: "Across the globe, an ever-expanding number of researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, industry, scholars and youth are exploring the boundaries and possibilities of digital media and the networked world of the twenty-first century."[cit] JUMP: The Journal of Undergraduate Multimedia Projects is an "electronic journal dedicated to 1) providing an outlet for the excellent and exceedingly rhetorical digital/multimedia projects occurring in undergraduate courses around the globe, and 2) providing a pedagogical resource for teachers working with (or wanting to work with) 'new media.'"[cit]

These video were made by some people for some thing (charming neighborhood girls, hanging out and having fun, inventing style in the face of invisibility, speaking about YouTube on YouTube) before they could be useful for many people for many things. And sure, "Jerkin in Jerkville" is already in the "New York Times," and record deals have been made, but even so, alongside that corporate culture, that terrain of outsiders, regular people, like me and those in Jerkville, use YouTube against itself, to build all the parts of a radical media movement: video complete with ideas, style, history, theory, from and to some people, speaking in a language we already understand about things we care about.
