Web2.0 Explained

The Machine is Us/ing Us

This is a great video created by Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University.

The video introduces the Web 2.0 concept,("..the so-called second wave of Web-based services that enables people to network and aggregate information online"*), and highlights the impact it is having in less than 5 minutes.

*A Lesson in Viral Video, an article written by Elia Powers back in Febuary for Inside Higher Ed, gives some background to Wesch's video.
