The Machine Is Us/ing Us

Thanks to Garry Wise’s Wise Law Blog, I’ve been pointed to a nifty video about the web and text produced by cultural anthropologist, Michael Wesch, of Kansas State University. Rather than put up the YouTube window here, I’ll give you the link to the video on Wesch’s own site, Digital Ethnography. It’s one of those medium-is-the-message things that you have to see; and then as you’re watching, think about the plodding PowerPoint presentation you’re going to be making the next time you talk… I think for me this hyper-twitchy rush is more fun, but I’m not sure I’d want to take a pop quiz about the content at its end.
