Google Master Plan

Interesting short movie directed by Ozan Halici & J├╝rgen Mayer from the University of Applied Sciences Ulm, Germany titled "Master Plan, about the power of Google".

The graphics are awesome. Watch it and decide whether any conspiracy involved.

Web 2.0 and Beyond

An excellent presentation by Michael Wesch, an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University entitled The Machine is Us/ing Us.

It says it all regarding how Web 2.0 works. And as Wesch put it:

Web 2.0 is no longer just connecting text, but it is linking people to share, trade and collaborate. We will now have to rethink on copyright, authorship, identity, ethics, aesthetics, rhetorics, governance, privacy, commerce, love, family, ourselves.

Here is the final version of the video.

This does make us to think differently that "we are the web" and not just simply consumer of knowledge and information.
