Politics, Emotion, and YouTube

Henry Jenkins and Stephen Duncombe talk Obama, YouTube, and emotional politics. (Second video down.)

Duncombe on the will.i.am Obama video: “It uses a language of emotions which one couldn’t articulate in a logical sentence.” He continues with an extended analysis of the “rhetoric that’s embedded in the video” that is quite smart and revelatory.

Heard a new term from Jenkins in this exchange, too: “collective intelligence culture.” I like it.
