Everything is connected: the machine is us/ing us

July 4, 2008

Watch this excellent introduction to the evolving internet by Michael Wesch, who’s an assistent professor in Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. Ideal material to introduce your colleagues with the concept of Web2.0. It explains why some changes are happening. For example, why the need to separate form from content? “I like Word!?”, ever heard that? I have.

If you’re interested there’s also the creator’s explaination, where he refers to We are the web by Kevin Kelly. Next on my list to read.

While I’m at it: consider watching these CommonCraft introductions to Microblogging and Social Media (thanks FackeldeyFinds).
