There’s so much great stuff in this video that I couldn’t not post it. (And Lefsetz is right; that quote about Ashton and Ellen on Twitter is incredible.)
I have to say, though, that I don’t think the video looks deep enough. Yes, social media/networking is a fundamental shift in the way we communicate — but my question is what’s causing that shift in the first place? It’s partially technology, but as Clay Shirky says:
“A revolution doesn’t happen when society adopts new tools; it happens when society adopts new behaviors.”
More on this idea is coming soon.
Your thoughts go here:
wow, great video, and love your thoughts. hmm, you have given me much to think about….
interesting stats. i really like the moving text display. wonder what they do that with.
I’m not sure, but I would imagine they built this is some kind of video editor like Final Cut or something. (If anyone out there knows, kindly share your wisdom!)
