Produsing Resources

This week in the Sport Coaching Pegagogy unit at the University of Canberra we are looking at Produsage.
There is a SlideCast of the lecture.
I was thinking of how to discuss produsage when up popped a delightful tweet from Catherine Deveny during the Twitter frenzy about the #spill.
I will encourage the group to look at Produsing Theory in a Digital World (2012) and follow up on Axel Bruns work (including this interview).
My fascination with Numa Numa continues unabated. I think this is the most perfect example of produsage. I was led to it by Michael Wesch in his Anthropological Introduction to YouTube (2008) (Numa Numa appears at 2 minutes).
This was the start of the Numa Numa phenomenon.
The produse example that fascinated me was this then and now Numa Numa from Synchasta.
I am hoping they and Catherine can help me illustrate the potential of produsage in teaching and coaching. Perhaps the Harlem Shake can do that too (as of 15 February 2013, over 40,000 spinoffs of the Harlem Shake meme have been uploaded to YouTube, generating over 700 million views).
