brand hype - what a fantastic resource. i wish this site were up and running last quarter, when i taught intro to communication. i'll definately be using this site in future classes.
brand hype is a web site "designed to foster informed debate about product placement in the movies." includes among other things a searchable database, a discussion forum, a few academic essays, and a gallery (don't miss the letter from sly stallone). great example of digital cultural studies.
