the power of video

I remember seeing this in 2003, on the Alan Cumming website of all places, and thinking how powerful an example it is:

So it’s amazing to see now, thanks to YouTube and other video-sharing sites, there can be efforts such as “Why Tuesday?” and “Video Your Vote”.

Obviously these videos aren’t as polished, but they still have an impact and purpose, whether to inform or persuade. Since I’ve looked at the use of internet in political campaigns since 2003, I’m just baffled at how much things have changed, how widespread access has become, and how people are using the internet in more innovative ways than thought possible.

Consuming, Producing, AND Sharing content = Citizen Media!
