- Judging from remarks Google CEO Eric Schmidt made at the National Association of Broadcasters meeting yesterday, Schmidt seems to envision a well-ordered world for YouTube.
- A world in which content will either be big-media licensed or be so silly it wouldn't have a prayer of being licensed.
- That's a far cry from the original intent of YouTube.
- But then, people such as rebayona give me hope that maybe all is not lost.
- Yesterday, commenter rebayona noted this in response to my Virginia Tech tragedy- related post entitled Lack of Va. Tech shooting links on YouTube, Google Video shows licensing model is flawed.
- He wrote:
"I uploaded to youtube a video captured from CNN en Español to complement a blog post I made today ... never get through. It was censored right away. Amazing."
But you know what? He now seems to have gotten this important video- a CNN-sourced cellphone video of the shootings..with the sound of gunshots..past the censors.
Here's a link to his description of what he has posted.
As for the clip, it's here.
