90% of every video linked anymore is at Youtube.
Where did we find them before youtube?
I have no idea! I think that Al and Tipper Gore kept them all in a locked shoe box until Bob Youtube, their poolboy at the time found the shoebox in the cabana and decided to somehow put all the neat "movin pichures" on his computer box machine. He called his old high school buddies, Mike Intel and Steve Google and the rest is history.
Same thing I do now, work and ride and have fun going out with friends. I must be one of very few people to not be interested in this phenomon.
Actually, before youtube we seldom saw videos shared as we do now. The ordeal required an host with enough bandwidth allowance, as well as hard drive space which were expensive.
*cue to an old man saying he had to walk to school, uphill and in the snow, both way*
Then I am not sure I understand the difference. I rarely click on a link that has youtube in it. I just don't care enough to go through the hassle of linking off of a site to another one.Originally Posted by KingTermite
What was it supposed to persuade me of exactly?Originally Posted by KingTermite
I mean it used to be somebody would occasionally stumble across a video they wanted to share and post it. People would watch it, blah blah.Originally Posted by Maelstrom
Nothing has changed except that links are more frequent and now its nearly always from Youtube. It just seems that stumbling across videos that one thinks is worth sharing happens about 5x more now that Youtube has come along.
Just more of an observation than anything.
I wont derail anymore (sorry about that BTW) but that kind of goes against the definition of a rhetorical question. Just sayin'.Originally Posted by KingTermite
Seeing youtube has made me reevaluate what I do with my time. I'm reading more books now and I'm applying to grad school.

I have a new one just about ready to release.
Negotiating with a local artist on a du ut des type of agreement. Pro bono was cool at first. But now I'd like to get maybe a t-shirt, autographed DC, or even a pair of tickets to a local show. I'd give them a finished copy of the .WMV file and play on my YouTube account in exchange.
I have watched your videos, Stacey. May try to make a video myself soon.
Would you like a dream with that?
Watched America's Funniest Home Videos to see jack@sses make fools of themselves. haha!
This day will be over... one of these days!

Quote from a Kaiser commercial that reminds me of my mom.
Before YouTube many people interacted with other real people in the real world.
