You Tube powering ahead

Great analysis of the youtube phenomeme by Jay Meattle who has posted the graph below. (Thanks to Techmeme and ZDnet for the link). It makes Myspace look really pedestrian. My guess is that Murdoch must be getting a bit rattled. Hence the reason for yesterday scare stories in The Times (also owned by Murdoch) about the  TV Without Frontiers Directive. For what the directive is really about see this page and you can see its that old chesnut "aimed primarily at protecting children" because parents are singularly incapable of doing that as how can you expect oldies to understand technology! The directive also seeks to encourage diversity and basically making it a right that everone in the EU can access the same material (stopping censorship by individual governments).

This is nonsense. you should read the proposed Directive.

there are a raft of regulations which wil prove prohibitive to small business in the creative media and to potential new entrants.

Read the British government and OFCOM's concerns on this! Creative industries now make up approx 10% of GDP in the UK!

For them to face this kind of regulatory burdon is v worrying.
