EPIC 2014

Review:

This is a brilliant fictional work by Matt Thompson, editor for startribune.comand Robin Sloan, who works for Current.

This 8 minute video looks at the changes in reporting and the growth of people power media.

Its a great starting point for discussions on web 2.0, the future of media, direction of technology education etc.
PCWorld.com did a good review of the film and this is also good for stimulus material.

Review

This is a brilliant video By prof M Wesch. This is an interesting and challenging video that raises serious questions about copyright, ownership, privacy, community, and so much more...

Here is what he says about himself
Professor Michael Wesch
I am an assistant professor of cultural anthropology, but first and foremost I am a student of the world. I have the coolest job in the world, organizing massive teams of K-State students into global citizens working for a better tomorrow.
