The Real History of YouTube in 3 minutes

July 5, 2007

Hello, YouTube. Here’s my latest video. One thing about the title: the video was 3 minutes and 20 seconds, but I added credits at the end, which made it longer.

The original song at the end is “Song for Paige” by Lee Wadlinger, one of my former students. He’s great. Go here for more about his music: http://www.myspace.com/leewadlinger and http://nextbestrecords.com/

I hope to make a few more YouTube videos this month, so stay tuned.

Update on the EU’s YouTube video of sex scenes

July 5, 2007

News: So all it took was about a day and a half for the EU’s controversial video mashup of different sex scenes from European films to go viral. Apparently, sex plays well. If my memory serves me correct, the video went from a little over 20,000 views on Tuesday to over 2.4 million views! That’s the fastest growing video on YouTube in a 24 hour time span, from what I know.

I still find it hard to believe that the European Commission is responsible for this titillating mashup. As I said before, the video itself is probably PG-13 by U.S. standards. You can judge for yourself here on YouTube.
