YouTube is ten!

What can you remember from ten years ago? What were you doing then?
I was in the USA working on my Ph.D. dissertation while bouncing my son on my knee. YouTube was just a baby and not yet able to entertain and educate my son like it does now.
It would be difficult to put ten years of content into a single video, but this curator offered his perspective.
My perspective is that we live in an incredible time. Never have traditional production and broadcast media been so threatened by online video.
Never has schooling as well in the area of content delivery. There are instructional, how-to, demonstration, flipped, and a whole range of other videos that contribute to the oft (and over) used “information at your fingertips” phrase.
All this happened without an overall architect. Now public and private agencies are curating and creating to offer concerted efforts and better quality videos. I cannot wait to see what the next decade brings!
