An interesting video, about how a once cool user based video sharing community, now falls into the corporate hands: YouTube.

Isn't sad, really?
Although I did complain about the increasing censorship, I did not pay much attention to the change. I figured out that YouTube is still a private business after all, so it would have been their call. But the video has a good point: YouTube would have never been where it is now without users and its initial recipe.

Was it mere baiting for us, so old mass media would soon find the right time to pour their warped content into new and once freer forms of communication? One wonders.
