Web 2.0 and The Internet is Us/ing Us

(Archived in: Sovereign Education Sovereign Rights)

"Teaching the machine"... the concept as presented by Michael Wesch (The Machine Is Us/ing Us) has been one of my favorite YouTube videos since I became interested in the power and utility of the Internet about this same time last year.

Given the last few posts to The Sovereign Journey regarding The Future of The Net, if left to corporatists and impotent government, I thought it appropriate to post now. Below is a portion of the closing litany from the video, which also seems timely to post.

"We’ll need to rethink a few things…

We’ll need to rethink copyright

We’ll need to rethink authorship

We’ll need to rethink identity

We’ll need to rethink ethics

We’ll need to rethink aesthetics

We’ll need to rethink rhetorics

We’ll need to rethink governance

We’ll need to rethink privacy

We’ll need to rethink commerce..."
