The First YouTube Video

YouTube Videos have been informing, entertaining and distracting humans since the dawn of YouTube time (2005). The first YouTube video upload wasn’t particularly spectacular.

Meeker also delves into artificial intelligence, Snapchat brand integrations, changes to live sports viewing habits, car industry innovation and the rise of millennial consumers, among many other topics.
