YouTube: New NBC or New Napster?
Posted by: Rob Hof on March 31, 2006
When someone from YouTube told a gathering at PC Forum a few weeks ago that it was serving 30 million video streams a DAY, no small number of people there did a double-take. I assumed they meant 30 million a MONTH. Nope, 30 million a day. My colleague Heather Green explains what’s up. I don’t know how they’ll handle the people who are uploading copyrighted material. But having struggled to post videos online a few months ago, I know that you can never underestimate the value of making a service dead-simple.
