Michael Wesch, professor of anthropology at Kansas State University, has posted an interesting video about Web 2.0 that might be a useful prompt for class discussion. It does a good job of showing both the technical and social process sides of the issue.
It’s part of a Digital Ethnography project. Now, there’s a thought for libraries – move our ethnographic research into the digital realm.

Thanks for posting that Barbara. Pretty cool and definitely worth a view. I think there’s something worthwhile in learning more about how ethnographic research methods can be used to develop a better understanding of our user population. I’m not quite sure how this fits into digital ethnography – which needs further study.
