PLN 7

Summary

The video "Web 2.0...The Machine is Us/ing Us" by Michael Wesch, demonstrates the view that the web or the web 2.0, as he calls it, is us, or is using us to learn from the users of the internet. He begins by demonstrating how "linear" the old ways of learning and communicating were, by just writing with a pencil; erasing and rewriting single thoughts.  Wesch then transitions into explaining how words are not just words, but that words become "content", that can be expanded on through other peoples input.  Now a simple word can be clicked on and expanded, and millions of peoples input on a single topic or word can now be accessed.  With that access, and the millions of people who input data related to a single thought, people now can access infinite amounts of knowledge that before, would have taken hours of research in a library for every to come up with; all with a simple click of a mouse.  In the past, what came out of a pencil, directed by our fingertips, was just extremely limited to just our thoughts.  Now, what comes out of our fingertips on a keyboard is just the beginning to a world of knowledge, inputed and accessed by millions of people a second. Wesch makes a point that the "internet" is so much faster than writing on paper; and how it gives the world the freedom and expression, and the ability to both obtain and share knowledge and is faster and more convenient than ever before.

Response

The video "Web 2.0...The Machine is Us/ing Us" by Michael Wesch is correctly demonstrating that The web 2.0 is using us to learn and to connect other people around the world. . Wesch also is correctly demonstrating that writing is "linear", this is so true, living in a world with "content". Wesch explains this by telling us "content"can be expanded on through other peoples input.  For example, as a class using the web is a almost a every day thing, it is so helpful to a class to have the web at its finger tips. A class puts in "Content" everyday into the web, by posting blogs, sharing papers, blogging on others posts, and watching and commenting on videos. Wesch talks about how anyone can search up anything with a click of a mouse and come up millions of websites and more knowledge in that search. It is the "internet", which is so much faster than the writing on paper and trying to figure stuff out with books. You have the world at your fingertips,"Web 2.0...The Machine is Us/ing Us" is s great way of demonstrating how the "internet" is the new and best thing out there.

  1. Great detail in your summary. keep it to the big ideas rather than all the details. Eliminate personal words.

    Good work in the response, but work on proofreading and word choice. Make sure you are extending out your ideas rather than using the examples they provide.
