Today's video of the day is a throwback to one of the all time classics of Internet videos: the numa numa video. 12 years ago this was the height of Internet video.  Video quality and broadband copacity was not what it was today, and the content reflected that.  Most Internet video 12 years ago looked like something you'd see on America's Funniest Home Movies -- not great.  Now, with full HD and faster Internet speeds  what we watch over the Internet is vastly superior in terms of quality and content.  Just imagine what kinds of videos we'll be watching on our computers in 12 years time.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
