Anthropologist ↑Michael Wesch, himself a YouTube and Web 2.0 buff—see his collaborative weblog ↑Digital Ethnography—, has himself landed a smash hit within said domains: His video ↑Web 2.0 … The Machine is Us/ing Us currently flies around the world. E.g. Technorati just some seconds ago ↑counted 236 links to it at YouTube. In an e-mail to the profession Mike commented:
This is truly an amazing example of the power of the web 2.0 technologies my video attempts to express. The best part is that it has linked me with several academics doing similar research in Cultural Studies, Media Studies, English, and several other disciplines who I would likely have never met had I not posted the video.
All this reminds me of ↑XML, stylesheets and Maya culture ;-)
