For most people, YouTube is a way to get music, pop culture, and cat videos. Delving deeper, you will find YouTube is so large that everyone can have a different experience. This talk is going to focus on the videos that relate to Humanist values, and show how amazingly creative they have been. The talk will discuss why the medium itself supports the tenets of Humanism.
Jeff Justice will also explain the economics of YouTube from the point of view of the video producer, the video viewer, the advertiser, and Google. He will talk about the sociology of the medium, and why economics arenít always the driving force.
