battle zones in declared and undeclared wars. Around the world, people rely on the internet to decry injustice and demand change. But there was a time, not very long ago, when digital natives had yet to be born and activist communities were going online for the fi rst, and second, and hundredth time, learning as they went. As they explored this new technology, which emerged simultaneously as a tool to wield and as a place to engage with each other and the world around them, users made and remade the internet in their own image(s). This book is the story of that

blowhard who is ranting and raving. I think comedy was a great way for us to try to make it relatable to people—it was the best choice kind of the only choice when we started to put together the issues that we wanted to talk about.82 With an appreciation of its digital-native audience, a spirit of collabo- ration, and a large dose of creative freedom granted to the comedy, the NextGen America team created a stand-alone entertainment product designed to spark public engagement.

sophis- ticated technology users, so-called digital natives (Prensky, 2001, 2006), do not automatically know how to compose a compelling story, respond thoughtfully to live questions, collect usable tape, project a strong person- ality through the microphone, or fill dead air. Neither do young people necessarily show up with nuanced understandings of social structures or with tools to critique mainstream (or independent, for that matter) media products. James Gee (2000, p. 62) writes that although schools are busily trying to teach young people how to think

Th ey entered the age of sexual activity just as the AIDS epidemic broke out.6 Th e Millennial Generation (1981–1995). Children of the baby boomers, the members of the millennial generation initially were called “digital natives,” as one of their formative

industrial production of entertainment is “the arena of consent and resistance. It is partly where hegemony arises, and where it is secured.”17 Dominant shared norms are fluid, and popular culture both reflects and shapes societal values and beliefs.18 For its part, contemporary mediated comedy—positioned prominently in the current entertainment marketplace through both reconfigured post-network TV19 and the digital-native environment of YouTube and Funny or Die—is an engine for new ways of seeing, or an arena of resist- ance.
