“Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us”

I’ve seen this video before. It was shown in a media literacy class I took last summer, but resurfaced today because a classmate is using it for a discussion about writing and technology in tonight’s Writing Pedagogy class.

A very cool video, it makes you think, etc. But what struck me about it this time was toward the end where he says we have to “rethink a few things” and then he lists “copyrights, authorship, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, commerce, love, family, ourselves.”

Web 2.0, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, this blog, and so on have given me a “public presence” unlike any other public presence I’ve ever known and when you make the choice to do that it really does (or should) make you rethink all those things.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
