reviews and encyclopedias have always operated as “metadata.” As a peripheral discourse to media, metadata in any form marks the contours of movie culture in any given moment. Previously, when printed video guides were the norm, they marked the abundant choices of tangible videos and Americans’ concomi- tant desire for choice. Now that this metadata largely occurs in a digital world the where the “metatext” is part of the same apparatus as the text, it provides both the literal and figurative gateway through which Americans find and select their movies.1 from

In the chapter “Globalization, Digital Skills, and the Brain,” Antonio Battro—the eminent Argentinean physician, psychologist, and brain scientist and one of the founders of the new field of mind, brain, and education—examines the extraordinary enab- ling potential that the digital world offers those with

highlighting the territoriality of conventional street gangs and our knowledge about how street gangs use space. We then discuss the territoriality of alt- right gangs and Aryan free spaces or “set- tings where white power members meet with one another, openly express their extremist beliefs, and coordinate their activities” (Simi & Futrell 2015: 4). Aryan free spaces exist in both the physical and digital worlds (see Simi & Futrell 2006), but this chapter will focus on the former and conclude by comparing and con- trasting Aryan free spaces to conventional street gangs

libraries com- pletely online, or the French project to digitize all of French literature, fi gure digitaliza- tion as opening up the library, expanding it and creating a new public sphere of informa- tion that will invigorate and revive the embattled, hybrid nation.12 Other metaphors abound, ranging from rhizomes, to digital worlds, to the environ- mental ecological metaphors, to the “Frontier” idea of the Electronic Frontier Founda- tion, to the medical prostheses as psychic formation, to the psychoanalytic dysfunctions as normality (Stone; Turkle), to death

I will return to the signifi cance of this shift in the gardeners’ involvement (from virtuality to self-disclosure) later in this essay, for it resonates with practices in the digital world of the net. Since the project we set out to produce was to grow out of interaction between com- munity members, media makers, and teachers, we agreed to shift the project in format and scope to address this new

grateful for this. On good days, I feel heartened by what is happening in the teen magazines and in the Lane Bryant and "Just My Size" ads. Perhaps advertisers are discovering that making people feel bad about them- selves, then offering products which promise to make it all better, is not the only way to make a buck. As racial representations have shown, diversity is marketable. Perhaps, as Lane Bryant and others are hoping, encouraging people to feel okay about their bodies can sell products too. Sometimes, surveying the plastic, digitalized world of bodies

artifacts and to provide access to them. If libraries are to continue to foster education and scholarship in this era of digital technology, it’s essential for them to extend those functions into the digital world.” 47 The need for cultural memory drives the IWM and libraries more generally. Noting the loss of early film archives due to the recycling of early film stock, the archivists state that they are building an “Internet library” because without cultural artifacts, civilization has no memory and no mechanism to learn from its successes and failures.
