critical reading for the rude

particulated debate

The democratic debate (cnn-youtube, 23 July 2007) is all smeared out, particulated, disparate, spread over multiple youtube user accounts, with no clear starting point, no clear index, and is violently temporally amix. I’ve had to watch it piecemeal. Haven’t found a watch-from portal at CNN or YouTube yet. Relying here on the kindness of uploads from political junkies… with varying results re: quality… and the net effect is that the big 3 or 4 get the most time (because they’re searched for more, linked to more, therefore ranked higher in results?).

I like this new 2.0, user-centered online media thing. I don’t like this post-postmodern scrambled-and-popularity-ranked outcome. I like like it when things are easy to find and contextual.  I don’t like watching 2 minutes here, 4 minutes there, all out of order.

Somebody give me a hint.
