Youtube is always there, it has always been there. In Web terms it is elemental. Like rocks or the ocean, or something. Ebay too (Difference is, I never use Ebay, never quite know what I’m doing, what pitfalls exist to trap the unwary. And there are many, so I hear. And anyway, I can’t be bothered).
So, Youtube. Two things have happened: My USB dongle connection seems to be so much better these days – watching online video is actually possible, and I have started making my own movies. If you make your own movies, you need to find them a home, so that other people can see them and say “what is this shit? are there no hilarious cips ofcute kittens falling down the stairs while chasing a spider?!!“.
So I am trying to set up my Youtube ‘channel’, edit my tags, try to view statistics about my video which I can’t do because only 40 people have watched the wretched thing, and pick which pretty colour the page is. I am also trying to remember which clips I have seen that I want to add to my favourite list, in a vain – and futile – attempt to make me look cool.
