New Generation of Content Producers will move from Silly to Profound, MIT’s Henry Jenkins Predicts

from Beet.TV

Looking at clips on YouTube, Google Video, video blogs and various video aggregation sites, we find lots of sophomoric humor and some just plain asinine behavior. Is the face of community content really going to be so silly? Are the young people being empowered with video and these new content sharing platforms going to use these powerful tools to create so much light-weight fare?

MIT’s Henry Jenkins, who heads the Comparative Media Studies Program, believes that what we’re seeing with young people is just the beginning of a new way of communicating. He calls what’s happening at social networking sites “playing with information,” and says that the MySpace generation will grow up to use those valuable tools to have a profound impact on how they communicate about more important things like politics.

We also believe that young people will soon produce thoughtful, powerful content that will impact society. It’s an inevitable progression – and we looking forward to seeing it.

    Not the autumn wind, always icebound love. The flowers in the plain Yan, fixed memory aesthetic picture, high now,
    dust everywhere, autumn difficult discharge, Sheng Xiao off are clear the vast, empty on the exile the Zen Mind,
    tenderness tenderness, but tonight the hangover didn't awake, three thousand black hair to make trouble. Shade of the
    long tassel, empty the cuckoo caw Yan envy, love the innocent, empty as melancholy abdominal. The moon waxes autumn
    gauze cold demeanor, Qi Hua Tianya tears Lapel chu.
