I came across this video in my twitter feeds. It is a music video from Japan (and no I don’t know what the words mean.) But it is a catchy tune and the video is just so neat. The coordination of webcams and the interactions between them are mesmerizing.
Maybe it is just the sociologist (or poet) in me, but for me it signifies the “people” behind the web and the amazing coordinating power of the web. As educators we have the opportunity make a beautiful song / beautiful “image” like this every time we teach a seminar — every time we facilitate a discussion on a discussion board. Metaphorically, of course, but equally as real and important.
