Hail, the Age of YouTube
If television be a "vast wasteland" then words will fail us
regarding the infinite mindless swamp of YouTube. Everything bad
about TV, multiplied a thousandfold. Half the young men in America
filming jackass stunts, half the young women prancing for the camera
in their underwear, leavened with little but pirated music & news
And yet the potential! A picture is worth a thousand words and a moving picture worth a million. Here is but one of many YouTube videos on lemon batteries -- and we must admit that the worst of them are a better way to teach a student the lesson than the words we've spent on the subject on this site.
So you'll probably see more YouTube videos on finishing.com. Now
if only we could disable that YouTube icon at lower right that,
beguiling us like a will-of-the-wisp, inexorably leads us to the
middle of the swamp :-)
