YouTube Gets 100 Hours of Video Per Minute

It is amazing how much video is being produced right now. YouTube is a huge reason that people are so willing to upload content, and yes, there should be the distinction between uploading and shooting, in fact I will often shoot video and not upload to YouTube. If you're like me, then you're adding to the countless amounts of video that are being shot right now, but look at the 100 uploading hours of video, stop, and think of how many are productions (certainly not all of them), and many are music videos, in fact all but one of the 30 most viewed YouTube videos of all time are music videos, as of today (May 21, 2013).
