Paris' Pink House: Spanish Harlem

This post started as a comment on Mark Bahnisch's Always on: the internet, social media, communications and everyday life

“The network society as …an amplifier of the conversation society has with itself”?

The blogosphere is often like the conversations that take place in the cab. Lively, topical, ephemeral. A bar without booze.

I find making video for the net the most time consuming and addictive. And the most rewarding. When you head off for a media free trip up the Gunbarrel Highway, your audience are “always on” and the videos have a continuing life. Sometimes it feels like no one is viewing and then suddenly, after the e-free holiday, the warm glow of the watched returns when you check your channels.

PS. There is a more discerning audience at Teachertube.com than Youtube. They never belittle the authors because they never comment. It’s the kind of conversation that happens in a cinema. Unless some Gen Y uses their mobile.

Over the last couple of days there has been a buzz of emails from Voices without Votes authors about Paris Hilton's Pink House video. They're part of that society conversation. This online piece from Paula Góes illustrates the power of that conversation across languages and cultures:
Eduardo Arcos [es] from Mexican blog aggregator alt1040, also believes that the video is beneficial for Obama:

…y con este video es posible que Paris Hilton sea una pequeña parte de la razón por la cual Obama gané, de ahora en adelante cualquier nuevo spot político de McCain va a ser motivo de risa, después de todo inclusive una rubia que va de tonta es capaz de ponerlo en ridículo.

… and with this video, Paris Hilton is possibly a small part of the reason why Obama will win as from now on any new political plot by McCain will be motive for laughter. After all, even a blonde taken as stupid was able to ridicule him.
Paris Hilton Ready to Lead America 6 August 2008
It also enriches my point about video. A picture is worth a thousand clichés.
