It offers the
potential for new ways to construct argument and bring evidence to bear in
documentary’s attempt to shape our shared world.

This was what i found most truthful in the reading. It talks about the new affordances of having video content online. Video content online alone is a documentary in itself where it documents everyday activities of the public. MAybe not in the same way, but i interpret this reading different from its intention. Take youtube etc… they provide a platform for sharing information to the world. Whether these videso have an argument or not, people constantly argue on whatever they please to that they can relate to the videos. THe reading just reminded me of the Ken Ham and Bill Nye debate which was publicised widely a few months ago.

This reading was about the ways in which context is provided through different amounts of detail and information. These different approaches all change the meaning ever so slightly.
