After watching the Best Vines 2013 video, I can see how video comedians can really make their mark using this 6 second cinema style. 
The Best VINES of 2013 Compilation! (77 VINES!)
The loopy video app is providing young adults, aspiring actors, and YouTube stars with a new place to showcase their quirky creativity -- and stars are emerging. Read this article by Jennifer Van Grove on CNET News.

"With regular weekly shows and viewer-friendly playlists, they are indeed slightly more televisionlike than the millions of mostly homemade videos that surround them. But the harder they try to resemble television, the less interesting they are."

Awesome article! I am grateful for the clear way you have illustrated the strengths of G+ for media literacy. I am sending you an invite to a new group I have created specifically to discuss these sorts of issues. Feel free to invite anyone you think might be interested (including students). 

Thanks

Last year at the New England Media Literacy conference, I heard Marc Presnky (Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants, 2000) talk about coding as the new base language, similar to latin, where the need of it will be more necessary than handwriting. I think that ideal is starting to be taken seriously.
Surely you know how to code?

Television on a box is still the money maker - until that changes, don't expect corporate TV to change.

Eusebio, a quiet man who's job as a forensic cleaner is to sterilize after someone has died, is now facing the busiest moment in his career as the city of Lima is plagued by a mysterious epidemic outburst. A lethal infection to the lungs is now rapidly spreading through the city and shows no signs of stopping.

One day, as Eusebio is cleaning a desolate house, he finds an 8-year-old child hiding in a wardrobe who has evidently become an orphan. Tasked with finding the boy's remaining family, Eusebio struggles to take care of the boy in a city that is slowly falling apart.

A man who has never been able to relate to people, and to life, suddenly becomes responsible for this young orphan. In a place where you would least expect it, a story surfaces about love and care.

This is a gorgeous film that needs funding. Please help and contribute to their IndieGoGo to help with the post production process.

With each new advancement that people come to accept, then later enjoy, we are one step closer to embedded technologies. Which of course people will come to accept and of course enjoy.
