An Explanation of Digital text and Web 2.0

Diigo Included!!

The Last one minute!

As if former guest blogger Mike Wesch
didn’t have enough to do, teaching enormous classes, creating world
simulations and so forth, he’s also created this video (thanks Kim for the heads up). My first thought was, wow, that’s annoying music… :)
but immediately afterwards I realized that this is a stunning example
of a video essay—an explanation of digital text and yes, web 2.0, which
is far more demonstrative than any written explanation I have ever
read. It takes that time-honored injunction “show me, don’t tell me” to
a whole new level. Bravo Mike! (oh, and watch carefully for the SM plug)
