Everyone and their brother posted on Google buying YouTube.

To me it's a demonstration of the power of the consumer side of the internet.

The $1.65B selling price, all based on "Hey dude, look at this!"

And we ain't seen nothing yet. Imagine a DIGG clone that your Mom would use. One that wasn't just for 20-something Mac, Linux, left-wing geeks (god love 'em). One that wasn't the slowest site on the internet.

It would be huge. 20x the size of Digg.

That's gonna happen. And yes, it will be full of crap, but hey, to paraphrase Gecko:

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that crap -- for lack of a better word -- is good.

Crap is right.

Crap works.

Crap clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

And crap -- you mark my words -- will not only save Google Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called Web 2.0.
