For my Inquiry Project, I will be changing my area of research. However, I will still be looking at the YouTube space, but I will be researching what components make videos popular and how some YouTubers become more popular than others.
Looking back at the new media readers, I have found that some of them will be helpful in this process. Vannevar Bush’s, As We May Think, discusses the very fast and easy communication between people due to the advancement of technology. This relates to the area I am researching because YouTube has made communication between the vlogger and the viewer easier and more available, resulting in many new opportunities for everyone involved with the website.
