Video: COM125 – The Rise of Us “Redux” (Day 2)

Continuing the first week’s COM125: Intro to Internet, I show current social uses of the web. I talk about collective intelligence, smartmobs, citizen journalism, what “Web 2.0” is about and how it’s an overused term (erm, Web 3.0 anyone?). I also cover related components of the social web and talk about the significance of blogs in light of today’s mainstream media.
