What is the web, really?

If, like me, you keep thinking you’ve ‘got’ the web, only to then realise that its essence still eludes you, this little video essay is well worth four minutes of your time. It is a very witty introduction to the idea that the web is about conversation, not the static presentation of information. Everyone is spouting that these days, but Michael Wesch makes the concept really accessible.

Oh, and if you teach ICT, why not download the hi-res version and share it with your students?
