Our weekly Culture Clips feature began as an email to youth leaders, pastors and cultural influencers back in 1999. Since then, Culture Clips has evolved and changed—the biggest of those changes being its migration to our website back in its early days—as we’ve sought to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s going on in entertainment, technology and youth culture. Each week for the last 17 years, Plugged In has done its best to focus on stories that offer insight into how entertainment and technological advancements are shaping our society, and how those growing up today are responding to the complex world they live in.
Starting next week, our Culture Clips feature moves to a new home—right here in our blog. If you’ve been a regular reader of Culture Clips, that’s where you’ll find them, every Tuesday, complete with a new format that provides a brief summary of each story as well as a link (or links) to the pertinent article(s) involved. We think the new approach will help users comb through the stories that we select each week as well as giving you direct access to our source documents.
This move will also add another element to Culture Clips that we’ve never had before: the ability for you to comment on and discuss stories that are most compelling to you each week. We often have lively conversations about particular Culture Clips, and now you can be a part of that conversation as well.
So stop back next Tuesday to check out Culture Clips’ new digital digs here on the Plugged In Blog. Let us know what you think. We’ll look forward to your participation in an ongoing discussion about the worlds of entertainment, technology and youth culture.
