Google Buys YouTube?

It’s official. Out of all of Google’s acquisitions this one makes the least sense to me. Google buying Flickr made sense… but they didn’t do that. Google buying Keyhole and turning it into Google Earth made sense. But why YouTube, when they already have Google Video. I assume it’s for the revenue it will make from an already established name, and for its community (of which Google Video has none). Any thoughts on this one?

Post your thoughts on this in the new Wyoming Jarbo Group.
