YouTube would be smart to sell. I've heard grumblings that they don't have much of a plan since burning through their venture capital.
Pretty Soon Google will officially by the "Internet". People will have Broadband Google.....
If I was youtube I'd seel and walk away and live on my own island
go google go!
Forbes this month features youtube for it's top story. Basically yeah, they are walking a tightrope now trying to figure out how to keep their consumers instead of becoming a passing fad. They've made a ton of money through sponserships, so they aren't bleeding anymore.
most of that sponsorship money were advert hits from omega knight apparently.
I bet myspace is the next target.
Too late, Murdoch brought it earlier in the year.
On that - I was thinking about this a few nights ago; does anyone think that a large part of the reason that Myspace pages are primarily english-language webpages for, well, english-speaking people is because of NewsCorp's management over myspace? I remember Friendster and facebook making their sites multilingual but I haven't seen it commercialized that overtly on myspace.
...or is it just a cultural thing, where word of Myspace just made it through the American and European counterculture/netculture faster and more english-speaking folks signed up than anyone else?
Boy, I sound like a conspiracy theorist wacko if there ever was one in that first paragraph.
Well, I'll be damned.
He'll be buying you, too. Eventually... he'll buy everyone and everything.
Guessin' it's a cultural thing. It's like, we don't really have a 2chan. Plus, wasn't myspace originally designed to promote bands?
Anyway. If google buys youtube I really hope they don't change it. It's hella better than google video.
If it does, its only a matter of time before all of Youtube becomes Hardcore pornography.
Looks like it is a done deal
Given YouTube will get sued out of existance within the next year for copyright infringement, they'd be frigging crazy not to take the money and run like hell.
its called pornotube.com
