Information R/evolution

I just stumbled upon this great little short film by Michael Wesch of Kansas State University (it's a year old now, it could be that everyone else has seen it but me). It highlights the way that the organization and retrieval of information has been changing since the growth of the Web. I'm sure the question "Exactly what is Web2.0 ?" has been debated around in circles for the last couple of years ... well, beyond the flashy web-based
UIs and 'social' aspects, this film exposes nicely one of the more important parts of Web2.0 in my opinion - the change in the way many of us organize and find information.
