YouTube “grows up” says good bye users.

leave a comment »

I knew this was going to happen. They’ve gotten paid. Got the suits and a few Porche 911’s so it’s time to tell the users to F*** off and start rowing in more money! Thanks YouTube.

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has more time on his hands now that his premiership is ending, but it was still a surprise to see him endorsing YouTube.

In a short clip recorded especially for a press event, he described the video service as a “shining example of innovation”.

He said he had been shocked to learn that he was the first world leader to have his own YouTube channel.

But it is clear that everyone from politicians, global media firms, teenagers in bedrooms to self-publicists has learned the power of YouTube.

Given its impact, it may raise a few eyebrows to learn that co-founder Steve Chen says the firm is committed to a “engagement, not interruption model”.

Quite simply, YouTube has not merely interrupted the broadcasting model of the 21st Century, it has torn it to shreds and shaped it anew.

Everyday hundreds of millions of videos are watched via YouTube. Every minute of every day, six hours of fresh video are uploaded.

Our goal is to have YouTube on every screen – to take it from the PC to the living room and the mobile phone.”
Steve Chen, YouTube co-founder

According to analysts Ellacoya Networks, YouTube videos account for 10% of all traffic on the internet and some experts fear that its popularity threatens the very foundations of the internet itself.

In one day, YouTube sends the data equivalent of 75 billion e-mails, according to network specialists Cisco systems. Read the rest of this entry »

WordPress wins the WebWare 100

leave a comment »

In a offical posting made by Matt today (http://wordpress.org/development/2007/06/webware-100-winner/trackback/)

The results are in, and WordPress is the winner of the Webware 100 in the Publishing category. Thanks to everyone who voted, but thank you even more to all the great people who make WordPress what it is. It’s an honor to have so many of you entrust your blogs to our software, and it’s an incredible opportunity for us to live up to the high standards you’ve set. Here’s what Rafe Needleman wrote about the results:

WordPress got the most votes. I was interested to see the Drupal CMS platform placing high in this category–above the consumer-oriented publishing products Typepad and Vox. Even combined, these two Six Apart services didn’t come close to winning the same number of votes as Drupal.

Glad to see our open-source brother-by-another-mother representing. The rankings in Publishing were WordPress, Adobe Flash, Drupal, Blogger, and Google Analytics as the top 5.

Or is this getting out of control?

Did Renetto break the YouTube rules?

leave a comment »

Many, If not all old time YouTube users know Renetto. He’s considered a “YouTube Celeb” (Although i dont think so.) and those of you who have been subscribed as long as i have will know that he released a video with the name “I cracked the YouTube code!”. In fact here it is,

But i just relized one thing, Did Renetto break the YouTube “Code of Conduct”? If you look you’ll see that it says

Hmm.

So. Since Renetto “gamed thumbnails” on his video, did he break the rules? Comments?
