The question is not whether or not we are being shaped by technology. The question is how.
Here’s the latest presentation from Mike Wesch. For those of you who don’t know, he’s a cultural anthropology professor at Kansas State. He does really cool stuff like has his classes study the culture of Youtube. Definitely check out his other stuff. It’s profound. Anyways, in this one he’s starting to sound a lot like the people at AMBS who have been studying the impact of technology on our lives and our church. This is definitely worth the time.
I would also like to see him engage the question of religion and spirituality within the youtube culture. But that might be a different discussion.
