I’ve been in meetings all day with team members who work on both coasts of the U.S. — as well as some who are in town from the UK and Japan. YouTube is popular around the world — 70% of our views come from outside the U.S. — and so whatever we decide in a room here has to work for everyone, globally.
In addition to managing our community and programming efforts, I also occasionally appear in news stories as a YouTube spokesperson discussing trends and other assorted topics. I did three last week, including one for a “20/20” piece, which won’t air for a few weeks, and one for NPR that just aired today. It’s an “All Things Considered” story about religion and web video. As with most interviews, I spent a few minutes this afternoon making sure I didn’t say anything stupid.
