Book Ends

This video from Dennis Cass depicts an author trying to keep up with promotional techniques for multiple social media channels, including Facebook, MySpace, Second Life, Twitter, and YouTube. You can check out Cass's "Awesome Writing Prompts" as well.

Meanwhile the Australian government has issued The writer's guide to making a digital living, which they promote with an online video parody of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe.

Both videos are about the humor and anxiety involved in the encounter of traditional authorship with digital media.
