I stay pretty plugged in at work with music. I find it not only helps me tune out neighbors’ conversations and keep me focused, but also helps keep me motivated while keeping content. I also cannot stop from chair dancing. And who can possibly frown while chair dancing?
I stumbled upon this crazy YouTube video, which led me to check out onehourpersecond.com, a website with alarming facts of how much video is uploaded to YouTube every second. At first, it made me a little worrisome that we spend so much time uploading; causing me to feel overwhelmed with how long it would even take to get through 10% of all of it.
But then it got me thinking, that’s a lot of people’s moments. A lot of triumphs, fails and belly laughs. We’re sharers and want to spread our daily happenings and learnings with others across the nation, oceans and continents. I’d be interested to see how many seconds are spent watching YouTube videos and seeing that paired side-by-side with uploading content.
Because I think it would show we spend more of our time uploading our experiences than watching others do it for us.
