A decade of YouTube

We are all addicted to online videos especially the viral ones, but nothing comes as close to Google’s video service, this week we celebrate a decade of YouTube. The first video to be uploaded to this service was done on April 23, 2005 and to celebrate this journey, Google is selecting 26 of its best moments and spotlighting them throughout May — from A to Z, a letter per day — on the YouTube Trends blog.

According to the YouTube blog,

[signoff icon=”quote-circled”]YouTube is a portrait of our global culture, seen through the lenses and perspectives of people around the world. It is a portrait built by a creative community of bold and fearless individuals. Built by comedians, gamers, activists, artists, performers, teachers, and pranksters. Built with cats and rainbows and blenders and ninjas and unicorns. It was built on the silly. It was built on the profound. It was built by you.[/signoff]
We don’t know what videos YouTube is choosing for the coming month (their first pick isn’t up yet), but we expect the best of the what has transpired in the past decade of YouTube.
