Editor's Note: In this video, Henry Jenkins uses a colorful phrase commonly abbreviated at MIT as "IHTFP." Those unfamiliar with the phrase's origins can learn about them here.

In conversation with William Uricchio, Henry Jenkins returns to reflect on his time at MIT and offers insights into MIT's culture, his new life at USC, and the state of digital cultures, new media and collective intelligence.

"I lived in the dorms and every dorm room had books in them. And the books that survive when you have tight space are books that are valued. And some of them might be graphic novels, and some might be science fiction, and some might be Middlemarch." — Henry Jenkins
