Awesome video explaning Web 2.0 and social media

Saw a link to this video via Cory Doctorow over at BoingBoing (via my subscriptions in Google Reader, of course ;-)). This video does a great job of explaining what Web 2.0 is. No buzzwords or grandiose technical visions. Just a simple, concise explanation of how we’re linking to each other using the web, and how the web is using us.

Check it out, and let me know what you think in the comments.

  3. This Video is great. A Simple explanation to the Web 2.0 tag line.

    What would of happen to every person with a Idea? If in the past Centuries they had to Manufacture their own pens and pencils or better yet build their own typewriters?

    That is what I think of when I look back at Web 1.0 – Every person building there own typewriter.

    Hey does any one remember what a shift Prodigy was in the late 80’s. They where the Google/Wikipedia of the day…
