In the video, "The Machines are Us/ing Us," by Dr. Wesch was confusing to me. I was not sure what Dr. Wesch was trying to get across in this video. One subject that was a little over my head was when he was talking about how structeral elements describe the content not the form of a document. i don't know what that means or why that is important. Also, I was confused when the video talked about how we are teaching the machines, and teaching them ideas. That doesn't make any sense to me. I don't understand how "the machines are using us," and "the machines are us." I thought the video was interesting but i didn't understand the point of the video and why the video was made.
