By far the most popular video-sharing site on the Web, YouTube catapulted into public consciousness after the posting of a certain cupcake-fueled Saturday Night Live spoof. Although "Lazy Sunday," was eventually removed from the site after NBC complained the network now posts teaser clips from hit shows like The Office YouTube's numbers kept growing: by July, less than a year after its public launch, traffic was up to 65,000 new video uploads and 100 million video viewings per day. Relive treasures such as Journey's "Separate Ways", observe a Great White grabbing lunch or see what folks with too much free time can do with a digicam and a dream. Often, video quality isn't great, and a lot of the stuff is junk, yet somehow we can't stop digging around in it. Neither can network execs, apparently: a comedy pilot called "Nobody's Watching," written two years ago for the WB but only recently posted on YouTube, was just bought by, yup, NBC.
