Walt Underwood on the 2.0 Video

Remember that video of a week or two back..? I am not completely on board with every part of Walt Underwood’s critique, but he hit home here:

“Finally, the vid ends up with ‘We’ll need to rethink love/family/ourselves.’ Really. I think not. I’ve been on the Internet for nearly twenty-five years, I was IM’ing my girlfriend in 1984, and I’ve needed to rethink each of those words, but not because of mail(1) or Usenet or Mosaic or Movable Type. It was because of people that I love and that love me.”

That makes the second hug I want to give in as many days. What is Sandy slipping in my coffee?
