The Megatrend of "YouTube"
Below is my comment on the article of "the people's network", TIME
issued on November 20, 2006.
I really would like to applaud your selection of YouTube as the top
of your best inventions 2006 because of its mega-impact on people’s
lives, our society and our culture not only in one year alone but also
in the years far ahead.
To my great surprise, YouTube is evolving by itself with the ballooning
increase of people making and watching videos on earth, separate from
the original intentions of the young founders. The old regime in the
media might have some fears on the peculiar phenomenon. No one knows
where YouTube will go. However one thing is clear to me, namely, the
major player of this game is not the limited number of professionals
involved in it, but the vast number of people connected with each other
on earth through this new device on the web.
