Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us

Many people have been linking to this fantastic video from Michael Wesch, a digital ethnographyer from Kansas State University. I think it reached the top 20 on YouTube this week. YouTube - Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us

I loved this video for the last 30 seconds where we are asked to rethink things. I think that is the challenge we face. Rethinking copyright, authorship, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, commerce, family, love ... ourselves.

If you haven't watched it, do it!

Thanks choconancy this is such a lovely video but .........
I will send the link to my blind colleague but I don't think he will get much from it other than the music.
The video talks about separating form and content but doesn't AFAIK.
Beware the 'spin' in Web 2.0

Very astute observation, Frances. Video sure doesn't allow us to separate out form and comment, so it is a lovely piece of irony here, eh? Thanks for noticing that. I'm smiling.
