Information R/evolution (Michael Wesch)

There is no shelf. Links alone are more than enough. Together we create more information than the Experts. We no longer just find information... Together, we can make it find us (Digg This!). There is a blog born every half second (Hmm, this one is from Wesch's other mind tickling video - Web 2.0... The Machine is Us/ing Us.)... "Influenced by the recent book, Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder, Wesch’s new clip offers a creative look at how the digital age fundamentally changes our relationship to information and how information gets organized. Have a look." (Source: Openculture)

Michael Wesch, an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University.

This is another great video to tickle our minds and facilitate discussions with our students (or fellow educators) about how the evolving digital age is changing the way we access, manage and share data, information, knowledge and wisdom. The real question we need to ask ourselves is: Are we ready? :)
