Best of the Web: YouTube.com August 16, 2006

Posted by j-dub in Internet, Technology.

After I read this article, I figured I would start my “Best of the Web” posts. I had already planned on doing these random best of the web posts, and I figured this was as good a time as any to start.

I’m constantly on the internet and I always seem to find an interesting site or tool that is worth passing on to all of you. That is basically the gist of these posts.

As the post title indicates, I’m focusing on youtube.com today.

Until recently, I hadn’t really visited YouTube very often. I had heard of it, and seen it linked to incessantly across the web; but I hadn’t really checked it out.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve visited it on an almost daily basis, and I never leave without a good laugh. I usually come to YouTube in search of some hilarious bit to give me my daily dose of humor.

Here’s my favorite so far scary wolf!(video clips, so if you’re at work, make sure your volume is down)

I’ve also checked out some others such as the mentos and coke videos (mythbusters just recently did an episode on this phenomenon also), the mac spoofs (of the new mac tv commercials), and I’ve heard all the talk about the latest Britney Spears video.

As the article I linked to earlier states, YouTube has cracked the top 50 most visited websites in the world. This is quite an accomplishment, especially once you consider all of the websites out there today.

If you’ve been on the web for an eternity, like I have, and want something different or just want to kill some time surfing the web; check out YouTube.

Feel free to share your favorite YouTube videos, or your “best of the web” nominees.
