1. I love Mr. Jenkins' bit on Wikipedia. Too often have I seen/heard the whole "Wiki means it's illegitimate information" argument which at this point in time is irrelevant. Brilliant philosophy.

  2. I hope you are wrong about social media increasing interest and participation in democratic systems. The last thing we need is EVEN MORE busy bodies trying to run other peoples lives.

  3. Dr. Jenkins I love what you have to say.  As an English teacher for university students in Istanbul, Turkey, I am learning to reach my students' interests using your discussion ideas about Participatory Culture and also MI Theory from Gardner.  I feel between these and also Krashen's CLT, I am making a more powerful series of lessons to keep the students engaged by using current hot-button topics and using technology to keep the TESOL conversations going.  Thank you for your great insights.  Zoe Marlowe, 2014.

  4. I appreciate the history of use of media by kids/people who aren't "in the business" of media or government. There is a lot of power in people having a voice through media.  YouTube and other avenues for this voice are excellent tools. I live in Nunavut where storytelling and participatory culture is traditional and it's exciting to see this affirmation of traditional ways of doing and thinking.

  5. This video was shot in 2013? I'm working on my master's thesis and I want to quote some of this interview, so I need the year Henry Jenkins gave this interview.
    Thank you!

  6. The feral kids of the internet – love it! Excellent video, I will be sharing this with my GCSE Media Students next year!
