Gratitude for YouTube

I suppose I should say all our streaming video sources but YouTube is definitely our most common. I don't watch regular television for the most part. I love football and other live sports but I have enough drama in my real life I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of watching other made up drama. My husband on the other hand loves watching TV and especially watching it together.

We have found our common ground in YouTube. We can watch how to videos, news videos, and even family videos together. It seems like such a simple thing but it has given us a common source of entertainment and education like nothing else has. I am truly grateful for YouTube and living in the stream.

The Internet is far more engaging as an interactive medium than broadcast. Barriers to creating content are going away; they're almost gone. People are taking control of their entertainment. People are Tweeting, posting on Facebook and YouTube. -- Ben Huh
