What is Web 2.0? Stop Fumbling with Words and Just Watch

We're a little late on this one, but it's worth mentioning anyway because finally there's a way to express the impact and meaning of Web 2.0 without verbally fumbling with "blogs," "collaboration," "synergy" and other bullshit buzz we've been hammered with and hammering others with so relentlessly.

After some trial and error, anthro professor Mike Wesch has perfected his text-based thesis on the evolution of the word, technology and ourselves in Web 2.0.

Definitely worth the watch. The progression from paper to text is a little painful if you've seen it 34598349058 times like we have, but it's nonetheless an elegant process and the ending is still pretty moving. Thanks Lee Hopkins for tipping us off.

Now Wesch can roll up his sleeves and start on his next project: Web 3.0, a web far more tangly than the one we've just finished weaving. But it isn't just around the corner, it's pretty much already here.
