Who said the mainstream media were rubbish?

Well, me, quite a lot of the time. In the spirit of flexibility of opinion, however, I post here a link to a more-than-decent article in the Guardian’s technology pages on Google’s snaffling of YouTube for $1.6 billion.

The piece, further down, gives some good stuff on the political effects of YouTube along with some great links to videos.

I predict soldiers with attitude and cameras having a big effect on the ease with which our politicians send them out to kill people.

I predict many more alternative journalists asking political candidates and politicians the sort of questions that source-and-relationship-protecting journalists would never dare. This is a very good thing.
