Hi everyone, thanks again for taking my vidding survey and follow up, if you did. I sent the 3 winners their Amazon gift cards yesterday. I'm making available an annotated version of my slides from the talk I gave at UIUC a couple weeks ago... I tried in the notes on it to explain some of my thematic goals-- I had a ton of content, it ran about 90 minutes, and I only managed to show snippets from the vids I wanted to show. And I didn't get to show all the ones I wanted, either. Argh, it was painful.
The audience was mostly grad students, with a few faculty/staff exceptions, including an interesting woman with a gaming video background. If you want links she sent me, I can post those.
My not-very-pretty-but-info-rich (!) slides are here: http://www.ghostweather.com/papers/Annotated_ViddingTalk_2010.pdf
Vidders mentioned in it explicitly (and some whose clips were shown), in no particular order: Killa, Lum, Deejay, Tashery (and me), Media Cannibals/Sandy-Rache, Charmax, Obsessive24, Jescaflowne, Hollywoodgrrl, Bradcpu and Laura Shapiro, AbsoluteDestiny, Proof Pudding, and Kandy Fong. There are also some network pictures that may include fan names, from public data on LJ. For these slides, even if you said you were okay being quoted by fannish names, I removed all names from quotes I included (it's the safest thing).
Also, right after my talk, Mimi Ito's article on AMV communities (keywords from the title: "distinctions and status") came out in First Monday. Her paper is here: http://www.uic.edu/htbin/cgiwrap/bin/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/2968/2528
. The overall First Monday issue is on "User Creativity, Governance, and the New Media." http://firstmonday.org/
