    30,000 employees to screen ALL the videos for 10 years? I think they need another 30,000 or more...

    "I`m gonna pick the video that doesn`t buffer for 10 damn minutes to watch a 4 minute video."

    Pay for better internet. If they don`t have better internet where you live move out of the south.

    I can`t even remember the last time anything buffered for longer than 5 seconds for me on youtube or hulu or netflix or anywhere else.

    "30,000 employees to screen ALL the videos for 10 years?"

    Totally.

    I can`t find any stat on total hours of video on youtube, but they say 72 hours are uploaded per minute.

    So in one year that is 37,869,120 hours of video.
    (365.25 x 24 x 60 x 72)

    If 30,000 people watched video 8 hours a day it would take 158 days to watch 1 year of video.
    (37,869,120 / 30,000 / 8.

    A standard 5 day work week with two weeks vacation is 250 days. So in one year they would see more than a year worth of video. Over the course of a decade they would definitely see all the videos as the rate of upload has grown over the years to this peak rate.

    @HolyGod: I stand corrected!

    (I am now arguing just to be silly)

    BUT! That`s only the FIRST ROUND of the competition! Next they gather their favorites and show them to the various selection committees, who in turn narrow the field even more!
    Sure they`ll watch all the videos in "only" 8 years, but it`ll take them another 2 years to reach the final selection...

    Ok, you`re still right, and they still don`t need another 30K... but they`ll need 10 full years. I can`t WAIT for the winner! ;-)

    (in the spirit of April Fools, I argue foolishly)

    "(I am now arguing just to be silly)"

    To be honest I had the same assumption as you and actually set out to prove you (us) right, not to prove you wrong.

    To continue to be silly I must counter your current argument. Youtube has only been around for 8 years. At its peak current uploading it is doing 72 hours per minute and the proposed crew could see a year worth of that in a little over half a year. If you assume that number has grown over the years then each year later it would take them less time to view all the videos. It wouldn`t take "only 8 years" to watch all the videos currently on the site, it would probably take around 3 years, which is actually kinda shocking.
