    The coolest part is that a professor of anthropology created it.

    Fantastic. I miss this kind of optimism.

    Off-topic, but this deserves to be widely read:

    The Ecstasy of Influence
    by Jonathan Lethem (in Harper’s)

    Also see the Radio Open Source blog.

    A strange way of reading: fragmented – unfocused – disorienting. But somehow it gets the message across quite effectively.

    Are we rethinking copyright, authorship, commerce, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, love, family, ourselves?

    Very good video to explain to the average Joe…sorta what web 2.0 is. I misunderstood this buzzword, I may understand it better now.

    I was a student of Mike Wesch last year for his Digital Ethnography course, and can say that he is a very talented, caring and driven person. His role models include Marshall McLuhan and Edmund Carpenter, and his fieldwork/ethnographic study are focused on a people group in Papua New Guinea.

    Thanks for sharing his video with the world!

    That was unexpectedly powerful. I should know damn well by now to put more faith in the citations you recommend, but old-dog-new-tricks, I guess. Thanks for that!

    WOW! That video has opened my eyes. The possibilities have always been quite infinate regarding the service of “the net”, but that hammered it home.

    Well done. I will be interested in more views from the Professor.

    I would like to point out here that ‘Web 2.0′ is a service mark owned by CMP Media LLC. It is a widely used word that is not commonly understood to be the property of a US Corporation.

    Hello. Everybody knows this.
    I call it a flex-video.
    In video writing we are brought to the test of mental recognition and comprehension, but nothing is more important than our focus, a little like caffeinated consumption of information, it leaves us amazed but empty. Same thing for the flicker bank of nothing, what does it mean? flex. bodybuilding.
    We need to rethink feeling.
    We need to rethink God.

    Rethinking love may be pushing it a little but otherwise it is very well done.

    Janet: Are we rethinking copyright, authorship, commerce, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, love, family, ourselves?

    Because you can move words around on a computer screen?

    Only people with a very rootless concept of love, family and the self can be impressed by this. Or, robots perhaps.

    Thinking and feeling appear to be dead for so many people – it’s very sad.
