  • Wow, how far we’ve come since humble beginnings.

    I remember being at a LAN center when we landed on YouTube – back in ’05. I admit, we laughed a little because the old interface was quite horrendous and the videos were truly awful but as it picked up, we watch it grow before our eyes.

    Since then, I think we’ve all uploaded a video or two – it’s infectious haha
