We Are The Web

Comments (4)

Great video on the essence of the web today from Michael Wesch – an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University.

 

I love the title – The Machine is Us/ing Us.  The neat question, of course, is where is the web going to be tomorrow?  At the end, Michael suggests that we need to rethink a few things, including copyright, authorship, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, commerce, love, family, ourselves.  (Thanks Bruce for the pointer.)

    Really great… the first time I missed the sound… the sound volume of the video was set to lowest… at least it started this way in my browser (IE7).

    Thanks Brad and Michael! I love the fact that everyone with a blog, social networking page, etc. can feel a kind of ownership for what Michael is describing in his video. Every time I post, a little part of me feels like I’m changing the world. Corny, but I think that’s a big part of the appeal of “Web 2.0″.
