Web 2.0: Remixing the Web

Posted by metaphorical on 9 February 2007

A rather amazing video, illustrating the power of the Web and the potential of Web 2.0 (with something of an explanation of what Web 2.0 is!) is here.

Then, take a look at this page where the same video can be found, with an ability to comment on it using Web 2.0 tools, just as the video itself describes. In a world of hypertext, the one-eyed self-reference is king, or something like that.

If you love the music (“There’s Nothing Impossible” by Deus), as I do, note that it’s being used for free under a Creative Commons license. How very Web 2.0.
