All together now: Happy Birthday YouTube!

YouTube celebrates its birthday with a short message to its avid users: “Back in November we challenged you to up the volume of videos you uploaded to the site.  And boy, did you take the bait.  Today, more than 48 hours (two days’ worth) of video are uploaded to the site every minute, a 37% increase over the last six months and 100% over last year.”
