Erik Borra is assistant professor in Journalism and New Media at the University of Amsterdam.


Friday evening at Video Vortex in Brussels, Ana Kronschnabl and Tomas Rawlings showed “a selection of exceptional, witty and provoking Internet videos, compiled for the occassion by international and local guests”, which can be seen here. Most of us had already seen those videos and in class we wondered why they only showed the ‘most popular’ movies – those that had already become a meme. Especially because on the conference the speakers talked a lot about the re-use and re-mixability of existing content. The website 53 o’s for instance, is a website that explores this remixing. 100 meter marquee is my favorite.
