A friend from the library world brought to my attention the following YouTube video that is making the rounds. For people who have grown up surrounded by digital technology, there really is no concept of web 2.0.
This is also a great reminder to anyone trying to communicate with the uninitiated. Buzzwords, jargon, etc. — while they can be useful when communicating within inner circles — often carry very little (if any) meaning for the masses.
Now I want to try this on my campus and see the responses.
What about you — digital native or not — how would you respond if you were in the video with these students and were asked, “What is Web 2.0?”
