  1. YouTube videos are about to get longer. The company says it is lifting the 15-minute limit on uploaded videos, beginning with a subset of users. These individuals have never violated copyright rules and have followed YouTube's community guidelines. Some content owners that partner with YouTube have already been able to upload longer videos but this step will remove the limit for everyone.

    Man, I have no idea how they host the amount of videos they do. And now they're allowing larger videos. Their server farms must be the size of a small country.

    Actually that is something I'd like to see in person. It would be interesting to see how YouTube handles the storage aspect and growth at the same time. Plus the monitoring, temperature control, etc.

    Wouldn't be surprised, if Google had their own private ISP.
