Rise of VBlogs: The Show with Zefrank

Zefrank makes Hooman happy. He is the host of the popular vblog “the show with zefrank.” This video blog offers video summaries of the news wrapped up with a comic bow. Think of him as Jonathan Stewart for Long Tail geeks. His most recent discussion of YouTube was pretty much the best thing ever. Here is a snippet from the transcript:

YouTube, the popular video-sharing site recently updated its terms and conditions. It now reads “…you hereby grant YouTube a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Submissions in connection with the YouTube website and YouTube’s (and its successor’s) business… in any media formats and through any media channels.”

That means they get to make money off of your ass however the fuck they want!

YouTube presents the ultimate DVD collection: World’s Stupidest People, starring you!

But, who reads terms and conditions anyways?

I don’t know what the folks at YouTube think of that little piece. Probably not to thrilled I imagine. Anyway, it is awesome that folks like zefrank are getting some buzz Vblogging. It will be interesting to see what feature changes, if any, blogging platforms make as this format takes off.
