New for the post-90s: "reality web"...
YouTube gets something like 100 million page views per day. Does it matter that 99 percent of them are a waste of time? That these homemade videos have no redeeming quality? Not in the slightest. To whom should it matter?
Google and its competitors are fighting for market share because, now, market share in and of itself means success. From now on, “the next big thing” will not mean great technology; it will mean whichever online entity can come up with the most “viewers.”
