Watching Dr. Strangelove with YouTube

I perused through Dr. Strangelove’s YouTube account today. I watched a lot of the movies he had uploaded himself, including the ones that seemed a little more personal than others. Shots of his home, or his wife filled the videos. This is a new experience for me, and I’m sure most of his student.

Never before have I had this sort of access into the private life of a professor. Well, except for a professor here at Ottawa that I grew up with and know quite well, but that doesn’t count.

Off the top of my head, I know Strangelove has an email, Twitter and YouTube account. Any of which I could theoretically use to contact him, or even just for the voyeuristic side of me, I can see what he’s like when not in class. Turns out exactly the same. But, I didn’t know that before.

We are truly entering into a new world of communication. We can engage in conversation or even dispute with people we barely know instantaneously. I don’t know if that’s a good thing, but it might be someday.
