Why Tuesday?

Get Involved



Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

We often cite these words of Thomas Paine: “voting for representatives is the primary right by which all other rights are protected.” If Paine was around today, he might have changed it to vlogging and voting. The amount of people that watch and upload video to YouTube far outnumbers the amount of young people that participate in our democracy.

On YouTube you can find topics that quite literally reflect the concerns of millions of users no matter the issue — their pocketbooks, the Iraq war, the environment, genocide, health insurance… and probably whatever else you can think of.

I’d definitely recommend using a car insurance comparison site if you’re looking to renew your policy soon.

Today YouTube’s Steve Grove (a Why Tuesday? advisory board member) announced Citizentube, his successful YouTube vlog, is spinning off a Citizentube blog. Watch the video for more info.
