Wesch does it again

Michael Wesch is an assistant professor in Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University who made a video called The Machine is Us/ing Us at the beginning of the year which – well, 3.5 million people have watched it so far; so I guess he hit the zeitgeist. It certainly made the hair stand up on the back of my neck.

Wesch2 is called “A Vision of Students Today” and it continues the theme.

What jumps out to me is that:

  • He is using the medium to explore the medium.
  • That his students must love the fact that he has a de-facto reputation.
  • And they are becoming part of it.
