Named Night Online News Editor for The Augusta Chronicle in February 2010. Responsible for laying out story priority and positioning on the site Wednesday-Sunday nights. So if you like what you see, thank me, and if you don't like what you see, let me know. Started working as an online producer at The Augusta Chronicle in August of 2006. Favorite news memories include meeting James Brown at the 2006 Toy Giveaway days before he died, live blogging the 2009 Masters tournament from the media center at Augusta National and anytime someone in power got in trouble because we caught them doing something they weren't supposed to be doing.

Watch This is back

After two months on hiatus, we'll see if we can get this YouTube blog started up again.


Lacking a real plan (the way most great blogs begin), we'll start off from some of the best of the top ten most viewed of all time. I'll skip the music videos (do you really want to see Justin Bieber?) and go straight to the classics.

#3 - Charlie Bit My Finger... again! - 225 million views



I like it because it reminds me of my son, who just added a bunch of new teeth in the last few weeks, and likes testing them on my fingers.


#6 - Evolution of Dance - 151 million views



Motivational speaker Judson Laipply, who you had never heard of until you watched him dance (what does he speak about, overcoming his previous lack of YouTube fame?)*, does a six minute routine going through 30 popular dance sensations of the past few decades.


*Seriously, I looked it up. He went to college, graduated, and became a motivational speaker. There's a degree for that?


In other news, the guy that brought you Blip.tv has launched ZeroViews, a website featuring the best of the worst on YouTube, a blog featuring videos he discovers that have zero views. Sometimes they don't have any views because they're new, others don't have any views because they're bad. You decide.
