The Googlization of YouTube
Okay, apparently there's some unwritten rule in the blogosphere (God, I hate that word) that says you have to publish at least one post about GoogTube. I'm not going to comment on the merger, I think everything that needs to be said has already been published. And even if it hasn't I don't really have any insight to offer. Instead, I will refer you to this WSJ.com piece where Leo Gomes observes that YouTube is quickly joining the ranks of Google and TiVo as one of those few companies whose name has become a verb--and, in the case of YouTube, even an adjective.

In New Scientist a few weeks ago, Feedback had a short piece on how we're not supposed to use Google as a verb anymore. The warning, of course, came from Google as they were concerned they'd go the way of zipper and kleenex.
