Skimming through a JISC report on web2.0 – “What is Web 2.0? Ideas, technologies and implications for education” [pdf] – I come across a quote from Jello Biafra, erstwhile leader of the Dead Kennedys:
‘We don’t hate the media, we become the media’
The report looks worthwhile – I’ve only had time to skim it as it’s 60 pages long, but it comes across as a surprisingly thorough overview of not just the technology but the foundational principles (wisdom of crowds, data on an epic scale, folksonomies etc.) and has some good links in it. Who ‘d have thought they had it in them.
