<nettime-ann> Video Vortex Reader: Responses to YouTube out now

The Institute of Network Cultures proudly presents its fourth reader:  
Video Vortex Reader: Responses to YouTube. Geert Lovink and Sabine  
Niederer (eds.), Video Vortex Reader: Responses to YouTube, Amsterdam:  
Institute of Network Cultures, 2008. ISBN: 978-90-78146-05-6.

The Video Vortex Reader is the first collection of critical texts to  
deal with the rapidly emerging world of online video – from its  
explosive rise in 2005 with YouTube, to its future as a significant  
form of personal media.
After years of talk about digital convergence and crossmedia platforms  
we now witness the merger of the Internet and television at a pace no- 
one predicted. These contributions from scholars, artists and curators  
evolved from the first two Video Vortex conferences in Brussels and  
Amsterdam in 2007 which focused on responses to YouTube, and address  
key issues around independent production and distribution of online  
video content. What does this new distribution platform mean for  
artists and activists? What are the alternatives?
