Interview with Shane Hipps

April 6, 2009 — 4 Comments

In January of 2009, I interviewed Shane Hipps about his book The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture. I did this as a way to gain insight into the book for the students in my Internet Ministry course at Biola University.  I have also shown this video as part of my “God in the Tubes” workshops that I held in Indiana in March 2009.  I have been receiving quite a bit of positive feedback about this video (a recorded Skype phone call, actually) and so I recently asked Shane if he would have a problem with me making it available for others to see. He has given his permission, so I am making it available, at least temporarily, on my genesys11 web site.

For readers of my blog, I will also embed it here. This embedded video will work for as long as I have the video available on my genesys11 site. It runs about a half an hour, but is well worth it.

    Great interview. I’m curious as to how you recorded it? What software did you use?

  2. For those of us who have left megachurches (‘regional teaching events’) have been struggling to build authentic community and understand the role of the internet, e.g., social networking, etc., watching this video is an excellent investment of a half an hour. Shane worked in Advertising at Porsche, etc., prior to being called into full time ministry and studied at Fuller. His four insights on the role of the internet are worth noting.
