Media literacy, and a terrible spoof of "Tomorrow"
We've kicked off the latest season of our YouTube series on media and digital literacy with a spoof of "Tomorrow" from the movie Annie. (OK, so this particular episode isn't really about media literacy... aside from taking the piss out of yet another movie retread.)

This season of The Media Show will respond to questions people ask Google about media and technology (SLcompletedKickstarter), as found by Google autocomplete (like "why does the radio... play the same songs over and over?") We have the great good fortune to finally be trained up as producers at one of NYC's amazing cable access channels -- Manhattan Neighborhood Network -- and we air in a half-hour format through the end of March on MNN's Channel 4 livestream (or FiOS 36, RCN 85, or TWC 67 & 1998 if you live in Manhattan.)

Previously: we explained where spam comes from and how search engines work, pondered the direction of the Muppets in a post-Jim-Henson world, interviewed Mitch Altman and Emmanuel Goldstein about what it means to be a "hacker," and offered to act as a sort of Wikileaks for the ad industry.
Role: Producer, writer, puppeteer
