[Air-L] DVDs for teaching internet/new media studies

Dear Holly,
I find watching short films sometimes very useful because it reaches diverse learning types (audio- and visual). 

For my last course (on Open Access, Open Content, Open Source, Open Media) last semester we watched parts of "steel this film" (http://www.stealthisfilm.com) and "us now" (http://www.usnowfilm.com/) which includes statements of e.g. Clay Shirky, Don Tapscott (and many others - no insult!). Both films go beyond mere "new media studies". 

Good thing: no bothering about legal issues of public viewing.

I am looking forward to hearing about other films, in particular for introductory courses to new media studies or information society research.

Hi Holly,

I recently ordered a few new media titles from the Insight Media catalogue for the library, but haven't used them in class.

Does anyone have any suggestions for recent DVDs that could be used in teaching internet studies or new media studies classes?  There are a few that I use ("IRL," "Virtual Worlds: Inside Online Games," aka "Avatars Online"... I think that's right) that are getting a bit dated, although are still great.  I am coming up with a list of more recent ones for my university's library to order.  Thanks in advance!
