After watching this video and being introduced to Michael Wesch’s research and experience, it really made me sit and think back on my life. Am I characterized but what people want me to be? Or am I really myself? But how do I know what being myself really means if I’m so influenced by the media and what it says is right or wrong? Am I purposely trying to be different? This video was much more than a description of Web 2.0 but rather how the media dictates our lives. He was right “the media isn’t just a tool” or just “means of communication”, they actually change our lives. I would love to go somewhere and not feel the need to use media, at all. I wonder how long I could survive? Asking myself that last question, the way I worded it was if I NEED media, like water or oxygen. Man.
