Take a moment to view a 10 minute documentary I created for my last class, Ethnographic Documentary. The name of the short film is Phantom Limb and it explores twitter and its many uses. Below is the description I wrote for the screening:
What are you doing? It is a simple question that may have a profound influence on the way in which we communicate, and it is the question that greets twitter users every time they use the service. In Phantom Limb we will explore the way in which twitter is connecting people as well as driving them apart, all with an inquisitive posture toward understanding how twitter is changing relationships, love, me, and you.
Once you view it, let me know your thoughts, specifically:
- How, if at all, is twitter changing the way in which we communicate?
- How, if at all, is twitter changing the way in which we relate to each other?
- Is twitter a passing fad or will it start a new communication phenomenon?
- Would you ever use twitter? Why or why not?

Thanks to all my interviewees, Greg Scott (my professor), and to the rest of my class for their support and encouragement.
