Battelle interviews Michael Wesch - the web 2.0 video

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've seen the Web 2.0 video created by Michael Wesch, a professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. It's been screaming through the tubes and has been posted and commented on all over the sphere. John Battelle just posted a really fine interview with Dr. Wesch in which he explains his vision of how connectedness and web services are changing the dynamic of human contact and interaction.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've seen the Web 2.0 video created by Michael Wesch, a professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. It's been screaming through the tubes and has been posted and commented on all over the sphere. John Battelle just posted a really fine interview with Dr. Wesch in which he explains his vision of how connectedness and web services are changing the dynamic of human contact and interaction. The interview has cascaded into a legty comment thread in which great questions are being asked by readers and answered by Dr. Wesch.

After I saw the film, I had to talk to the man who made it. Michael is a very thoughtful fellow, as one might expect, but he comes to "Web 2.0" from an entirely different perspective than your typical Valley entrepreneur (yet he seems to know more than most of us!). For more, read on....and keep in mind the Michael has agreed to answer your questions in the comments field, should any come up!
