Video tutorial on Web 2.0 March 20, 2007

Posted by Joanne KY Teoh in Convergence, Social Media, Web Video.

What is Web 2.0 really? Do we use digital social media or vice versa? Here’s a video tutorial to give you a visual explanation. This is an updated version of the video featured on YouTube.

It’s created by Michael Wesh, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Kansas State University. His faculty is dedicated to exploring and extending the possibilities of digital ethnography.

Video synopsis:

Text is unilinear…when written on paper.

Digital text is different. Hypertext can link.

With form separated from content, users do not need to know complicated code to upload content to the web.

Who will organize all of this data? We and You.

Digital text is no longer just linking information.

Web 2.0 links people won share, trade, collaborate.

We need to rethink stuff like navigation, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics.
