this video explores the changes in the way we find, store, create, critique & share information. this video was created as a "conversation" starter & works especially well when brainstorming with people about the near future & the skills needed in order to harness, evaluate & create information effectively.

the movie is from Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at the Kansas State University, the same person behind the viral Web 2.0 video from February.

well, basically it's nice. but too much focus on "web20", which is, compared to the old papery information just a lot of old-style cabinets, folders and files in more places (ie: not decentralism as the web was initially thought of, no centralism either but some kind of "olicentralism" ~ many centrals.)

To be more clear: photos->flickr. personal Homepage->myspace. blog->blogger. That's not decentralism, nor pure freedom and total anarchy as one previously thought about the "cyberspace" (even better example: Second Life as the "new cyberspace"? What a laughable thing,...)

Hopefully some semantic web-thingy based on a P2P-technology without (or not fully relying on) central servers...

To return to the subject: nice visualisation :) But they should have shown how the papery information can be changed (by scratching through etc)
