Web 2.0 Evolution

This video is pretty intense! I think the video aims to communicate how prevalent and crucial digital media has become to our society and particularly how quickly it has happened. As for people already in or entering the workforce it is essential to learn and master all the techniques/fundamentals of the new digital age in order to be competitive in the workforce. With these new technologies emerging in the past few years, our generation has been fortunate to have been introduced to this new age. In fact, I have seen first hand in the workforce how our graduating class in sought more so then those who graduated simply 2 or 3 years ahead of us because technology has changed so rapidly in these past few years. I completely agree that we will have to "rethink everything" because we most definitely will. Digital Technology effects everyone on every level from access to someone's personal wedding photos to illegal access to government legal documents. An digital anamoly has been created; thus, a new means of thinking is required to grasp these new concepts.
