Infoscape Lab and YouTube Analysis

Jean Burgess on the AoIR Listserv has put together a quick summary of people doing research on YouTube:

Another good discussion on the "Layers of the Net" is also taking place. Here are some of the sources for the "original" discussion of the layers of the net (this list is pasted here more so I don't forget too):

1) Abbate's Inventing the Internet

2) M. A. Padlipsky's The Elements of Networking Style:

3) Yochai Benkler talks about a Physical, Logical and Content layer:

4) The 5 layer TCP/IP model is defined in the early 1970's at ARPA (Vint Cerf):

Cerf, V., and R. Kahn, "A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication", IEEE Transactions on Communications, Vol. COM-22, No. 5, pp 637-648, May 1974.

5) The 7 layer OSI model: http://www.comsoc.org/livepubs/50_journals/pdf/RightsManagement_eid=136833.pdf


Here's another book I should read too (from the AoIR list):

Devices of the Soul: Battling for Our Selves in an Age of Machines, by Steve Talbott http://www.knowprose.com/node/17646

I can't recommend Talbott's book higher. The 'Educational Provocations' chapter is worth the price of the book for many, I believe.
