If You Attended Our Session at South By Southwest…

On Monday, danah boyd and I had a conversation in front of a packed room at South By Southwest in Austin about youth, participatory culture, the politics of fear, wikipedia, Second Life, YouTube, and a range of other topics which will be familiar to those of you who regularly read this blog. Since we are seeing an influx of first time readers about now, I figured I would provide a key to some of the blog posts which touch on issues that cropped up during the session — a kind of one stop shopping to the best of Henry Jenkins (or at least some of the better posts I’ve made since this blog launched last June.)

  1. You should add the post “Experimenting with Brands in Second Life” as it provides a nicely objective introductory overview of Second Life.

  2. I liveblogged your conversation with Danah on lj, here. It’s a mostly-full transcript of what both of you said. Thanks again to both of you — it was a terrific conversation on which to listen in.

  3. I was really happy to see that you had a SXSW session, and you completely stole the show, in my opinion. Very helpful starting point for exploring a lot of your work, and applying it to my job (interactive marketing). Thanks.

  4. Whoops! Looks like I mis-copied the url of the transcript of your presentation. Sorry about that.

    The liveblogged presentation is here: http://kassrachel.livejournal.com/470109.html

  5. I also liveblogged your presentation. I thought it was fantastic and we spoke for a few minutes after about how we should be teaching parents to interact with their online students. Here is my liveblog post: http://www.21apples.org/articles/2007/03/12/sxswi-convergence-culture-a-conversation-with-henry-jenkins
