Every now and then, something reminds me that most of the world doesn’t spend as much time as I do staring at a computer monitor. Case in point: This story from NPR’s All Things Considered about YouTube. I caught myself thinking: Lonelygirl15 is NEWS? That was MONTHS ago! Such a nerd.
Right after the YouTube story, they did a segment called “Will 2007 Bring Another YouTube Phenomenon?”, in which “experts” predicted the online stars of 2007. Some are more expert than others.
