Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us

A YouTube video by Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Kansas State University, tries to explain Web 2.0 in just under 5 minutes. It shows what is happening, but also some of the things we need to rethink (including of course copyright, which is currently radically outdated for a world of peer production -- and governments listening to the old-media lobbiests are facing backwards...).

That's truly an amazing video.
But what browser is he using? Not IE, cause it has tabs.
Maybe one I don't know.

IE 7 has tabs.

Microsoft Internet Explorer didn't have tabs in the past, but they do now.

Note: I only know this from listening to audio blogs -- as someone who hasn't seen IE on anything other than Windows 9x, its funny to be responding.
