There’s an interesting analysis by John Dvorak on Dow Jones’ Market Watch where he says we should be looking at what YouTube did right – not spending so much time about how it will be monetized.

So let’s look at what caused the growth. And let’s note that this company is hardly the first on the block to let users share video. Google video, in fact, looks a lot like YouTube, but never achieved this growth despite getting a big head start.

Two things seem to be at work. The first is the incredible desire people have to share video clips with each other. That’s now apparent. What’s not so apparent, unless you actually have tried to use the various video sharing sites, is that nobody — and I mean nobody — made it easy until YouTube.

Nice thoughts from silver haired fella.
