Michael Wesch is a cultural anthropologist at Kansas State University whose work explores contemporary digital culture. His YouTube video "The Machine is Us/ing Us" is an excellent starting point for our course.

"The Machine is Us/ing Us," by Michael Wesch

Working in groups, you will be responsible for starting a discussion of at least one part of Wesch's video. Wesch has conveniently broken the video into six semi-discrete sections.
