Happy Birthday YouTube

posted by Nell Minow

Can it be that YouTube is only five years old? It began in May of 2005 and was bought by Google for $1.6 billion just over a year later.

Now it has twice as many viewers every day as all three television broadcast networks combined. It has fundamentally changed the way we share our lives with each other.

Of course, YouTube celebrated by creating an anniversary channel for users to upload their tributes. “Guest curators” like Katie Couric, director Pedro Almodovar, and Conan O’Brien posted their all-time favorites. And fan favorites like the “Lonely Girl” are back with their thoughts and updates.
