> one of my students talked about this - it's a video ranking site,  
> where user's comments appear simultaneously with the video as it's  
> playing (and determine ranking). It's a great example of new media  
> remediating old media-- live captions on tv news (like cnn), and you  
> could take it further back to cinema and subtitles.  What I  
> particularly like about this site is the user comments can overwhelm  
> - literally take over - the video screen.  In the context of my  
> classes which are doing that basic work of demolishing the SMR model  
> of communication, it's a great example of where noise becomes the  
> message.
