YouTube Around The World [INFOGRAPHIC]
To enlarge image: i.imgur.com/ZXQVmFz.jpg

With 80 percent of traffic coming from outside of the U.S., 60 percent of viewers on YouTube come from countries whose primary language is not English. Where do they all come from? Why do they turn to YouTube for their content?

The below infographic from YTD will give you the skinny on these facts.

A snapshot of what you’ll find is that many YouTube viewers come from Saudi Arabia, where the younger generation turns to YouTube for entertainment because of strict government control over television programming. A great number hail from the United Kingdom, where music group One Direction’s VEVO YouTube channel has 12.8 million subscribers.

Next is Germany, even though 61.5 percent of videos are blocked there, and Australia, a country that uploads 48 hours of video every minute to YouTube. Finally, the land of the rising sun, Japan, boasts has 5.59 million users active on YouTube.

If you haven't picked up a Chromebook just yet, you might want to wait a little longer. Intel has just announced plans to roll out as many as 20 new

PaperFold is an e-paper smartphone concept that adjusts how it displays information based on the configuration of folds. 

For example, flattening opens a Google map view across all three screens. Opening it up like a notebook changes the bottom display into a keyboard for typing: http://cnet.co/1j8QfKD

Has ocean fertilization been proved? Early indications may be spectacular. I've long favored careful experiments in this one kind of "geo-engineering," which simply replicates nature by providing missing elements to some of the vast (90%) of ocean zones that are nutrient poor deserts, almost devoid of life. A senseless enviro-puritan reflex has blocked these experiments, which are inherently retractable and which I portrayed way back in EARTH (1989).  Frustrated by this excessive eco-prudity, a Native American tribe in British Columbia financed the distribution of 120 tons of iron sulfate into the northeast Pacific in 2012, hoping to stimulate a phytoplankton bloom which in turn would provide ample food for baby salmon.

That is what appears to have happened, on a stunning scale, starting with the expected plankton bloom. The following year - (according to Robert Zubrin, whose notoriety comes from promoting Mars colonization) - "the number of salmon caught in the northeast Pacific more than quadrupled, going from 50 million to 226 million. In the Fraser River, which only once before in history had a salmon run greater than 25 million fish (about 45 million in 2010), the number of salmon increased to 72 million."

These numbers appear to be confirmed … though I welcome participatory research from you folks.  If any cause-effect can be supported, it would seem to offer very strong reason to pursue further experiments in this nature, which promise better side effects than any other palliative measure (more food from vitalized fisheries) while pulling carbon from the air.

Read this article in the conservative National Review, where Zubrin offers up quotations from enviro-obstinates that reveal embarrassing political and mental obduracy on the left.  Only also know this, that Rob Zubrin cherypicked these quotations, which are extrema from a spectrum wherein most environmentalists are reasonable people. Rob is a vigorous and interesting fellow -- I like him -- but also a rigidly dogmatic person of the very far-right, which comes out in his article, veering into realms of denialist crackpottery.

Working your way through it will be a test of your ability to pluck (many) pearls from (a lot of) manure.  Learn to do that… and that similar ratios sometimes are seen on the other side.

Must this always be our fate?  Having to pick our way through an opinion-minefield, between opposing, simplistic militancies?  A pragmatically progressive civilization would shrug off both eco-puritans and fanatical climate denialists and seek precious positive-sum opportunities.  We need to explore this one -- this potential win-win of ocean enhancement -- swiftly and carefully. Or else it will be done in the dead of night, from boats that dump "fertilizer" without oversight or scientific supervision.
