Web 2.0 Finally Makes Sense

Others I know have been touting the wonders of the "new" web for some time, especially the way that web users can accumulate the material they want without clicking furiously through a maze of websites and keeping track of bookmarks. But it didn't really click in my brain until I watched the video clip sent to me by TQ. The video, "Web 2.0 . . . The Machine is Us/ing Us," is by Michael Wesch, an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. Thanks, TQ, and thanks, Dr. Wesch.

It also helped that I subsequently watched a video by Andi Gutmans, cofounder of Zends, which also took on trying to explain Web 2.0: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LzQIUANnHc&NR
