The Machine is Using Us



This is a video that was done by a professor at Kansas State University. It kind of puts Web 2.0 in a different perspective, while at the same time defines a lot of what Web 2.0 is all about. Being a Jayhawk myself, I can't help but to give credit to a neighboring university where credit is due.

What are your thoughts? Has social networking made it to where we cannot even turn away from technology? Are we constantly relying on the use of facebook, twitter, blogs, and chat to have even the simplest of conversations? Does the machine know us better than we even know ourselves?

Hollywood certainly thinks so. With movies like iRobot, Surrogates, heck even Wall-E, we see an increase in the belief that one day machines will take over man, and we are the ones that made it happen. Does this seem too extreme or perfectly possible?

I actually posted this video as one of my first few blogs! I like this video a lot too, but Web 2.0 is beginning to fall by the wayside...make way for Web 3.0!

Dang I checked back to see if you already had, because I left like it was something you would post, but I didn't see it. I guess I didn't go back far enough.Oh well, double the exposure for an awesome video!
