Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us (Video)

Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University, produced a video explaining the evolution of the Web from simple hyperlinks to Web 2.0.

Incredibly well done, although a bit hard to keep up with visually.

    A great presentation. Although I find “Web 2.0” a bit pretentious, rather like “Fourth Generation Warfare”. Does the Constitution with the first 10 amendments constitute Constitution 2.0 (more accurately, Constitution 3.0, I suppose).

  2. Cool stuff!

  3. John Burgess says:

    That’s very cool, but too quickly paced to follow easily. Eyes want to explore! The (human) machine learns!

  4. See … I told you all about this and you wouldn’t listen.

  5. Pretty cool video about the net.
