"The amount of traffic generated each month by YouTube is now equivalent to the amount of traffic generated across the entire internet in all of 2000."
Really? I thought the internet was stuck in 1997
Even back then, videos online were pretty popular. Granted, you needed to be on a fast connection, but Windows Media and Real streams were definitely out there.
