The Machine is Us ...

... brilliant video on Web 2.0 and, even more, Text 2.0. (yes, i know, the geeks will know it already.)

nothing is really new, if you'd try to put it into words. but it is completely new.
the media is the message, of course.

by "digital anthropologist" Michael Wesch, Assistant professor of Cultural Anthropology, Kansas State University: "My videos explore mediated culture, seeking to merge the ideas of Media Ecology and Cultural Anthropology."

"Wesch created "Virtual Snow," a growing on-line resource on the life and work of Edmund Snow Carpenter, an anthropologist who was instrumental in developing the foundational ideas of media ecology which inspire much of Wesch's work with digital ethnography."
