Interesting video about Wikipedia and Web 2.0. The video has clips of Larry Sanger, Tim O'Reilly, Jimmy Wales, Andrew Keen, and others - and hence, is full of sound-bites. The thing about this form - the video documentary - is that there is no really way (or requirement) to substantiate perspectives with argumentation and evidence. So I found it a bit loose - O'Reilly (as one commenter notes) still claiming to have invented web 2.0, Keen making statements unchallenged. Oh, and let's not forget all the 'hippie' remarks. And what I wondered most was how these guys managed to get a 48 minute video onto YouTube when I am blocked if I try to upload anything longer than ten minutes. But for all that, the video is still worth watching.
