Murphy's Law

Tom Murphy

Don't forget what Web 2.0 is about…

Sometimes when you get too close to the hyperbole around Web 2.0 you start to believe the hype or worse accept the hype as reality.

The exciting thing about Web 2.0 isn’t the zealots preaching from their lofty perches.

The exciting thing about Web 2.0 isn’t the death of off-line, traditional or other things.

No.

The exciting thing about Web 2.0 is that people can come together online with a host of new channels, tools and technologies and do amazing things.

The exciting thing about Web 2.0 is incredibly intelligent people collaborating and sharing.

This video from Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University is a nice reminder of what this is REALLY about. [via Philip]

Don’t let the zealots wear you down. We’ll all still just normal people.
