VENUE: Museum of the Moving Image
ADDRESS: 36-01 35th Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101, USA
As Head of Culture and Trends at YouTube, Kevin Allocca has watched first-hand as the video sharing platform has transformed the way we watch, make, and share video. In his new book Videocracy: How YouTube Is Changing the World...with Double Rainbows, Singing Foxes, and Other Trends We Can't Stop Watching, Allocca charts how and why some of the internet’s most-watched videos became so popular and examines the surprising ways people around the world are using the site today. He heads a panel with Kenyatta Cheese (Know Your Meme), Evan Gregory (Auto-Tune the News), and Vanessa Hill (Braincraft) to share what he has learned and talk about the stories behind the videos. Followed by a book signing in the Museum store.
Hosted by Museum of Moving Image.
