I'd also like to point out midVenture's improper use of the term "tipping point"
Tipping point is not when something has tipped and is no longer famous. Tipping point is meant when something goes from being used by a small group of people and then tips into a larger group.
Oh come on... you LOVE the videos I share with you! :P
The nice thing about youtube is the variety. The "stupid videos" are just a part, and the people that are going to get tired of youtube because of them have probably never bothered to look for anything other than stupid videos.
to clarify, I am not tired of Youtube. NOT AT ALL. I love youtube. I'm just curious about it culturally and it's place within our society and where it's headed.
I also asked this question on the spudart facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/spudart/posts/191002300914379

YouTube is like Excel: it is so deep you can never truly know what it can do/what is available. I still find myself saying "I should look that up on YouTube!" I mean, is there another option?
I doubt I'll ever tire of YouTube - like Tom said, it's an endless font of random things that never ceases to amaze me.
Thanks Tom and Winona! I feel the same way. MidVentures wrote an interesting blog post about how he overheard a teenage girl in an airport say that she's tired of Youtube. Which sounds ridiculous, but there are some interesting observations....

I'm drafting a blog post response to come in the new year, you can special preview it at:
I can see how teenagers might tire of it ... they probably have zero interest in looking at videos of anything older than they are
ha tom. wow. that's quite true. Your insight there kinda negates the midVentures blog post.
Sparx, that is a very INSIGHTFUL comment that stupid people look for stupid videos. Therefore, they say stupid things. There are indeed many good things on youtube.
Not sure where else I would get my fix of 90's music videos, my English Muffin Nigella Lawson's cooking demos (since her show on Cooking Channel and.or Food Network are on earlier than I would ever turn my TV on) and something I currently have on my "Look up" list: Pumpkin' Chuckin'
