It's almost an hour long, but worth it. You may never think the same way about Youtube again.
As a warning, althougth it is a scholarly dissertation (but by no means dry or boring) you may hear the "F" word a few times.

WOW.. that was quite an interesting hour. I really enjoyed watching that. Thanks for posting this for us to see. And actually, I have mulled over YouTube and the culture of it. It's very interesting. I subscribed to this professor's channel. Interesting what he has to say really.

WOW..

Definitely! If you've ever wondered what "it is" about YouTube, this will tell you. Don't let the words professor or Congress fool you. It's very down to earth and entertaining, as well as extremely informative.

I see what you mean tea but there is way more to it than meets the eye. I find it interesting. One would think at first.. professors are teaching about YouTube in college? But, if you look at it on a deeper level it's a valid concept I think. I don't feel fooled really.

Oh no no! That was a compliment! I meant that nobody should be put off from watching it because of who did it and in front of whom. :thumbsup:
