Stop what you are doing and check this out on YouTube. You find creativity and innovation in the most unlikely places. And fun.

OK. Who are these guys? Are they a Chicago band--Brits in Chicago? Is the track part of an album called Oh No?

Yes--it's all true. Is there any doubt about the power of viral?

I wouldn't have paid much attention to YouTube if it wasn't for my daughter, a college student, who pointed out a very funny music video she downloaded to her MySpace site. I am trying out Google Video and YouTube...fooling around with it when I am bored.

Blogging, in addition to MySpace, Xanga and YouTube is catching on very fast and the allure of publishing on a public website even entices young teenagers who flock to join a publications class so they can Blog.

Having a child grow up in the INFORMATION NOW age was a fast and wild chat rooms, little info given out and absolutely no names, ever. That child grew up loving it all...the more information, the better. She entertained her mentors this past summer during an internship at an overseas bureau of the BBC. She was also wowed by them; their intellect, creativity (they have lots of power she said) and the energy to chase down all angles of a story whether it was about a king, a pedophile or monks who loved the World Cup.

Stephen Shepard is off to a wonderful adventure with his new journalism students. I'm so pleased that you decided to you'll be covering the KOS convention in Vegas.
