Google to buy YouTube

Google is going to buy YouTube for %1.65 Billion.

Google snatchs up YouTube for $1.65B

We'll just have to wait and see if they scrub out all the cool stuff that violates copyrights. If that does happen it would be cool to see people unilaterally abandon and collapse it. Organized strategic movements of consumers is something I would very much love to see develop. I'm not sure if it is a matter of organization, communication or level of care that prevents this from materializing in a controlled and directed manner. Date to dream.

I personally, am going to be a bit miffed if all the YouTube embeds in The Foundation go dead.

Here are some YouTube Alternatives:
Daily Motion

Live Digital

Zippy Videos

Blink.tv

it was a nice move by google however they only sparked competition for themselves from like 1000's of other sources, there is now Yahoo Jumpcut, AOL Uncutvideo, Motiono Motiono.com, Vimeo, and a whole a-lot more video sharing sites out there.
