Test Tube Baby

According to The Writer’s Almanac, today is the birthday of YouTube. That’s right, kiddies, YouTube was born on the 15th of February way back in the olden days: 2005. (I think I have a lettuce older than that. Not really. But maybe a cheese.)

Here’s Almanac’s take on the thing:
In its few short years in existence, YouTube has become a cultural phenomenon. It is the Internet's fourth most popular Web site, and it receives millions of visitors a day. One of the results of YouTube is that ordinary people now have a chance at fame (or infamy). Time magazine’s 2006 Person of the Year was You, partly due to the rise of YouTube.
And if you don’t know what a YouTube is, well… go waste half an hour watching kitties play the piano or sing. (Or, if you don’t want to waste time, watch my son do lotsa stuff. And watch it through to the very end. The last segment just cracks me up!)

hey, you got a problem with Youtube videos of cats (seemingly) doing funny things? That's half my blog, Linda!
