Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

There is now a growing population of people who use Youtube to LEARN. That’s right, LEARN! You can learn how to garden. You can learn how to build a fence. You can learn about the newest software. You can learn how to play a musical instrument. You can learn to speak another language. You can learn about all kinds of new technologies. You can learn how to use very specific types of software applications. You can hear reviews of new Apps for your new mobile devices. Almost every topic you can think of now has at least one video demonstrated on Youtube, and more likely, there are hundreds.

Image of Youtube logoThe world has changed. Books have gone electronic and more and more reading materials are being provided in the form of pdf, epub or proprietary alternatives. If your created work of great literature is not electronic right now, or you are not in the process of converting to ebook, then you are missing the boat and will have to wait until the next one comes along!

But there is another strong alternative to the written word. Its Youtube and its very, very powerful.  Many people are finding that there is basically nothing that they cannot watch and learn on Youtube. Some people use Youtube to watch music videos. Others to hear about celebrity gossip. Others to see dumb animal tricks or the cutesy videos of children doing cutesy things.

There is now a growing population of people who use Youtube to LEARN. That’s right, LEARN! You can learn how to garden. You can learn how to build a fence. You can learn about the newest software. You can learn how to play a musical instrument. You can learn to speak another language. You can learn about all kinds of new technologies. You can learn how to use very specific types of software applications. You can hear reviews of new Apps for your new mobile devices. Almost every topic you can think of now has at least one video demonstrated on Youtube, and more likely, there are hundreds. There are even book videos that read to YOU!

Youtube is now a valid alternative to reading any manual. Youtube is now a valid alternative to taking a class. As a matter of fact, you are now able to have subject materials presented to you by some of the greatest experts on that particular subject in the world! Amazing!

Now, when I need an exotic recipe for a dinner, its far easier for me to log into Youtube and search for the hundreds of versions of that recipe and watch, step by step, production and final presentation than it is to crack open that old cooking book or even search for a recipe in an ebook or even search for a recipe on the entire internet. Most times, internet searches are going to point me back to Youtube anyway!

Youtube is a marvel. It has lots of feeble rivals. None compare. Tech experts know a good thing when they see it! No big DUH about that! Youtube is an established video encyclopedia of endless information streamed from every corner of the planet! It is a power house of electronic majesty and perfection. It is a valid source of Accessible information. It allows, video, audio, mono-lingual materials and subtitles to reach all kinds of people, many who might have very specific needs. Youtube crosses the boundaries that separate humans from each other. It draws us together and makes us realize that we are all one type of animal, no matter how messed up we may all look!

Youtube is the People’s Voice of the World in video format. No big production needed. As a matter of fact, the more polished your video looks on Youtube, the LESS likely anyone is going to watch it. For then it appears like a giant, cheap rendition of a television commercial. And we all know how to hit FAST FORWARD!
