Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us
zephyrin_xirdal on xirdalium posted this Youtube Video on Web 2.0 that’s currently sweeping the web. It’s truly the best short on understanding the evolution toward Web 2.0 that I’ve seen. While I would recommend Wikinomics to those looking for a deeper understanding of how mass collaboration is changing the way we create and manage knowledge, this Youtube video by Professor Michael Wesch of the Kansas State Digital Ethnography project is just terrific. It really hits home the notion that mass collaboration leads to an emergent global intelligence that is more incredible than anything we could have planned.
