Bringing Alive the Dead, Courtesy YouTube!
YouTube has the power to bring back the memories of yesterday while enjoying the sights of today. What else could substitute for a video of your grandma from the past or a lost loved one.
For people like me who are so much interested in the past, there's no more fascinating resource than YouTube. Having grown up on dad's stories of Mohammad Ali in the boxing ring it was a wish come true when I first bought a DVD (with Ali's fights) from Amazon for dad. I couldn't find it in India then. Things changed in 2005 when video sharing was possible, on a never before scale, with YouTube. Today, I've seen more fights of Ali than what dad listened to on the radio.
And its not just people's video, YouTube has brought the TV to the net. That is really something!
How the video sharing site sustains its present model is what I look forward to.
