The goal is to always go viral on any You-tube, I had thought viral meant anything over 1,000 hits... I have learned to classify a You-tube as viral you need 100,000 plus hits... I guess everyone who ever makes and submits a YouTube wants to go viral.
Viral used to mean you had a disease you needed anti-biotics or hospitalization for. Viral is now something cyber junkies strive for, not try to avoid.
Recently I purchased a Sony handy-cam at a closeout price at Walmart, I could not refuse this palm sized device that with a little memory card can record many hours of sound and high quality video capable of being transmitted within seconds anywhere in the world.
I graduated in 1979 from Brooks institute of Photography with a BFA in Professional Photography. My major was motion picture science.
The old process of clip boards, moviolas and separate recording devices has been replaced with camera's and phones that can fit in your pockets and do it all.
Recently I have had some problems with the local police and with the help of my Sony handy-cam was able to prove without a reasonable doubt that I was being harassed.
Everywhere we go, everything we do, remember the person next to you probably has something in their purse or pocket that can record your every move.
Big Brother is here, for the good, the bad and ugly...
