I am quite shocked today. Much to my great surprise Yahoo Video is closing its site and starting afresh. I cannot imagine the reasons why , but I still want to cry.
Many years ago they featured one of my first videos. Quantum Physics in India. It was fun/great/awesome being on the front page and seeing numbers go up like I had never before. I felt so real and alive.
No, it never went viral but it was always number one or two in the Science & Environment section of Yahoo Video even though other videos got more hits. I really liked that it would always return to the number one spot. http://video.yahoo.com/explore/videos/categories/science
It Felt like I had a guardian angle looking out for me. They also featured my Mimetoliths Video and that was comforting as well. The big closing will occur March 15, 2011.
Being number one at any popular video site is always very sad to loose.
In a way it is like losing ones children. Thats probably because I don't have any because I realized long ago, I would never be able to gaurantee them any sort of home or education. So these videoschildren of mine were all my hopes, dreams and wishes for some kind of old age. Now......Not.
If your going to watch any of these please do see this one below because the music contains my personal sentiment and more.
So,.......If thoughts of OS closing brought on fears of the unknown to it's dynamic users , this is something that even the Big Sites like YAHOO do as I am clearly witnessing. Remember, if you like Yahoo video...watch it while you can. Below are some of my best rated videos & comments from over the years. As you can see it's a tough wish and a dream counting numbers and comments as something to cherish in ones bankrupt old age.
As George Harrison said...All things must pass.
Below are my videos that passed the 1000 hit mark.
