Malaysians & Web2.0

I gave up explaining to people what I do for a living.

Next time, I’ll just forward them this video. It’s a presentation by the Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State U on how the internet is evolving.

For some of us, Web2.0 can be an ugly, overused buzzword. For most Malaysians, it’s a question mark.

When I say I work in an internet startup from the Silicon Valley, they think I do either web hosting or web design.

And that’s okay. If all Malaysians were well acquainted with the hype surrounding web2.0, they’de assume I’m doing cliche overhyped wannabe stuff hahaha

But seriously. The internet rocks.

After all these years, I can only get more excited about the changes in the internet which are happening this moment… how man and machine is evolving. How collective intelligence is being collected, disseminated and organized. etc

And I really believe in the work I do with BlinkList.

Apart from my colleagues, are there any other Malaysians involved in web2.0 projects? Let me blog about you please!

    Very interesting video…though it does get a little messy at times…it still drives the point home.

    Might have helped if you embedded it slightly larger.
