Real Movies On YouTube…

According to this article and I’m sure many others, YouTube will imminently launch a movie-on-demand-service charging users to stream Hollywood movies off the world’s largest video sharing site.

This will give Apple iTunes a run for their money… Isn’t competition great!  The American way.

Interestingly, the article referenced above indicates that some of the large film companies are on board with the YouTube deal, while others are not.

The interesting part for me as I think of it, is that movies are a great form of entertainment, generally.  Actually though, think of all the revenues, like hundreds of millions generated in this industry so far.  And it just seems to get more creative.

It was about thiry years ago or so, when the big shake up in the entertainment industry was when someone wanted to put feature length films on video tape.  Remember the big to-do that was!

Anyway, should be interesting to see what happens and what it will mean to the general public, once YouTube gets into the on-demand movie business.

What do you think?  Do you even care?  What may it mean to you?

What is the Impact of Social Media?

Wednesday is Internet and social media day at Sixty Something Now.  The following YouTube video is something I found fascinating when someone sent it to me the other day.  I thought you might enjoy it as well.  To get the most of it, you might have to view it a couple of times.  It moves quickly, just so you know.  But, that’s the beauty of video…  You can play it as often as you like.

What is your reaction to all of this?  Do you find it exciting?  Perhaps intimidating?  Or are you excited because you are taking steps to be in step with it too.

Let me know what you think?
