YouTube: A Website History

For a seminar in Digital Methods we did a short film on the history of YouTube and its googlization. From a community (actually more a dating service in the very beginning) it turned into a search engine for videos. The video tells the entire story of this process and points to the most prominent changes leading there. Unfortunately wordpress.com does not allow to embed anything but YouTube and Google videos – what irony! Instead I will link to Simeona’s post on the Masters of Media blog which also includes a more elaborated version of the theoretical background of our research.
