what do you think. Youtube is a store house for videos from as far back as people can remember and listed so that people can view them as long as youtube is around. More importantly videos that would go lost forever due to lack of commercial interest are suddenly given a place to rest on a bookshelf so someone someday can view them. like the library at alexandria its a library of immense wealth of knowledge. some not so popular but nonetheless still useful. Think about it. losing youtube will be a loss of knowledge of our present day and past that the future generations can only guess at. the loss of library and even the knowledge of the roman people put Europe in the dark ages. No youtube isnt going away but the information stored is still useful to us and our future generations.
