YouTube is synonymous with Internet culture. In the eight years since the very first video was uploaded, the platform has hosted countless cat videos, Rick Rolls and the occasional tech video or two.

“Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube,” Google said. “If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.” Man, if YouTube were a country, who would be its president? What would the educational system be like? I’m not sure I want to know.
Google’s video platform is one of those priceless services that millions of people are indebted to around the world, including TechnoBuffalo.
