You got Youtubed...!!

Most grad students staying by him/her self - would definately know these two men or rather this one man: Jeff Dunham. But Walter, like he describes is someone we all know or would have met at one point in time.

Youtube and google videos have helped students through hellish essays , exams and sometimes even the boring nobel laureate's lectures :-P . (Lecture:An art of transferring information from the notes of the Lecturer to the notes of the students without passing through 'the minds of either' )
Indeed applicable !!

The purpose of this blog has been so showcase the fact that I am indeed one of those many grad students who takes time out to watch these videos. Some of the videos passed around do change a students perspective on life. Opening doors to possibilities never knocked on before. Videos like the Stanford Graduation ceremony, product launches, latest MUSIC, movie trailers .. are all watched on these service providers.

P2P sharing is banned in most university halls; hell we can't really blame the university for these rules because if it was relaxed, the network would be jammed and there would be chaos.

It is quite sad to learn that in some countries these websites are banned because the government is unable to control the content. But then again - everything has its ups and down.

For now I shall list the videos that I would watch on any given day :-)
(Google videos has the long version)

  • Jeff Dunham :
  1. Achmed the dead terrorist- Love this guy
  2. Walter ( uncle :-P )
  3. Peanut
  • It would be an injustice not to mention Russell Dominic Peters

  • Stanford Graduation speaches

  • The last lecture

Thats all for now - will update it soon ...!! Happy watching !!

(Please do update it !! )
