Viral

The term viral video refers to video clip content which gains widespread popularity through the process of Internet sharing, typically through email or IM messages, blogs and other media sharing websites.

I have uploaded quite a few video's over recent months, and I just had a count of the download figures, to be honest my figures are small cheese compared to many, but what a medium for communicating a message. The whole thing is as of yet still not fully co-ordinated (a good thing), it is still in the hands of ordinary people, and it is free through places like YouTube.

I think it is a brilliant medium, where else can people like me find clips like Robert Smith (The Cure) doing an acoustic version of 'Boys Don't Cry'...amazing




By the way, the total of my downloads in 5 months - 73783, where else can you get free coverage like that!
