Happy Birthday: YouTube Turns 5

It is hard to believe that YouTube has only been around for five years, but the biggest time waster since Napster celebrated half a decade of existence last week. The most shocking number is that YouTube generates 2 billion views per day. Along the way YouTube helped to redefine Web 2.0, politics, and has challenged the major media companies to come into the 21st century. So with let's raise our glass and salute YouTube for bringing us; Britain's Got Talent, Numa Numa, Lightsaber Kid, Tron Guy, and many, many more. Now let me excuse myself I have to get back to see what new video has been posted.

  1. Heh...it always amuses me that people think of me as a YouTube celebrity. I was around, and an Internet celebrity, a year before YouTube got big: my first appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! was May 2, 2004.
