Web 2.0: The Machine is Us

Created by an anthropology professor, this video explains the history of how information sharing “worked” when the Internet first began, then explains why the transition to XML was important to give us new ways to use this information. The second half then goes into how it is our responsibility to tag, categorize, and describe our Internet…and what legal pitfalls need to be re-evaluated. Even though it is still a draft, this video is the perfect way to help explain Web 2.0’s importance to people who Just Don’t Get It.
