Origins of this content
I wrote this texteo in November 2010, during the last weeks of building the video-book and in response to corrections and additions suggested by MIT's copy-editor, Mel Goldsipe, who thought a glossary of the uncommon terms I use and invented, as well as the inclusion of a more traditional (if still funky) citational and bibliographic system, would be both useful to scholars and researchers, as well as more acceptable within common academic writing and publishing practices. I chose the several "more" videos to interact with my LFYT 2007 student, jweitzel's video "Britney Spears Uncensored Dancing and Eating," which itself, spoke some more to them.
"Gimme gimme more, gimme more, gimme gimme more/The center of attention/Even when they are up against the wall/You got me in a crazy position/If you're on a mission you got my permission." Britney Spears, "More" [cit]

"One is fun, why not two?/And if you like two, you might as well have four/And if you like four, why not a few/Why not a slew/[More! More!]." Madonna, "More Lyrics"[cit]
Users of Learning from YouTube can read and watch its texteos by following its YouTours or Tags to engage with my primary arguments about YouTube. However, the architecture of the site allows for many more possibilities for depth and interaction. The More pull-down list in the top-right corner holds several resources of note:

A bibliography of Online Resources with links to the varied websites that were used to research and write this video-book.

A list of Online Citations that are quoted in the video-book via links that are indicated by [cit].

A Glossary of terms used in the video-book. Glossary terms are in green. Clicking them produces pop-up windows with short definitions.

The credits name and thank all who contributed to the video-book's construction and publication.

Furthermore, the Origins & Context and See Also pull-down lists (just below and to the right of the Search window) provide even more resources:

Brief bullets of background information that frame the condensed (often tweet-like) writing of the texteos, with links offsite for further reading.

Links to more videos like the ones under analysis, also offsite, on YouTube.

The Voice pull-down list provides opportunities for you to contribute content and corrections to the video-book. And what's more, the best way to learn from LFYT is to play, be critical, and always ask for more. So go for for it! Take a YouTour ...

(Navigation note: In the HOW TO USE THIS VIDEO-BOOK YouTour, by hovering your mouse over many of the red words—those that refer to navigational devices for the video-book—the device being discussed will become highlighted with yellow to help you locate it on your screen. Clicking a red word provides a link off the texteo.)
