YouTube: one of the giants of the Social Web

We've been looking at many personal pages on the Social Web this morning. One of the most popular is YouTube, a site for amateur filmmakers and vloggers. A British couple, for instance, decided to try their luck at an amateur cooking show and came up with Crash Test Kitchen. Posted on YouTube, their "Sponge Blob Square Pan" episode was viewed around the world. Watch how a cooking show can go badly -- but keep its humor. It's all in the spirit of the Social Web. People post content meaningful to them and others find it.

We hope you have enjoyed the class. Be sure to add your first name and personal page URL to this blog posting. That way others in class can stop by for a visit and you can visit them. Leave a comment for us, too. We'd love to hear what you thought of the class or any adventures you have exploring the Social Web.
