Enterprise 2.0 and web 2.0 in 5 minutes, "the machine is us/ing us..."


[For those interested in impact of web 2.0 technologies in research and the enterprise I recommend the following.

Some good presentations at Enterprise 2.0 http://www.enterprise2conf.com/2007/presentations/


Also Hans Rosling's talk at TED on integrating and visualizing open data with web services and other tools is highly recommended http://tedblog.typepad.com/tedblog/2006/06/hans_rosling_on.html

Thanks to Markus Buckhorn for this pointer -- BSA]


For your amusement...

This is a clever little video clip by an anthroplogist discussing (within demonstrating) some web 1.0 and web 2.0 concepts. Ideal for those net-gen's who need to learn things in 5 minute chunks...

Far more entertaining and musical than some of the other 'explanations' I have seen :-)

Cheers,
