YouTube is brilliant

I can easily imagine myself becoming addicted to YouTube, quitting my job and spending the rest of my life watching fake amateur video blogs or kids robot dancing.

In fact I’ve just spent that last 5 minutes watching a guy who took a picture of himself everyday for the past 6 years then spliced it all up together – it’s hypnotic.

This is the very essence of what the web is about and thanks to broadband being the norm I think we’re going to see blogs replaced with video blogs over the next year.

We’ve already seen Matt Cutts blogging via Google Video. I find this along with podcasting a much better way of getting my blog-style information as it means I don’t have to read. I don’t think I’m alone in disliking reading too much on screen and my blogroll is far too long that I skim over virtually everything these days.
