Researching YouTube

{insert generic paragraph about the significance of YouTube}

The term "YouTubeOlogy" was coined by Henry Jenkins in his book Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide. Highly recommended.

At this website, you will find resources for qualitative and quantitative YouTube research. Right now you can get a random sample of YouTube videos, statistics about YouTube, or an SPSS data file with which I studied the audiovisual style of YouTube videos. Use the menu to the left to navigate the site.

Any and all feedback is welcome. If you have data or opinions to share, please don't hesitate to contact me.

“You can learn more about how Americans live just by looking at the backgrounds of YouTube videos—those rumpled bedrooms and toy-strewn basement rec rooms—than you could from 1,000 hours of network television.”

Lev Grossman, Time's Person of the Year: You
