In 2012 I wrote an article discussing the ever growing video platform 'YouTube', and how it arguably has grown into the new TV. Since then I constantly rethink how within that time YouTube has still continued to grow...

The question we should be asking is not whether Occupy London the camp will go, but what will happen when it is gone? In other words, what will be different this year, because of this extraordinarily successful protest last year?

Happy New Year!

So, 2011 was a pretty quiet year, then? No major changes. Probably one the history books will skip over. Or maybe not... Governments, dictators, economists, not to mention news reporters, certainly might beg to differ. From the Arab Spring to the summer riots much closer to home, the eurozone crisis and natural disasters of epic proportions, 2011 will be remembered if for nothing else, its ability to shock and surprise.

As fireworks lit up the skies and 2011 began, we knew little about the year we were welcoming. Of course, we were preparing for a royal wedding and predicting our chapter of austerity had barely begun. Yet, we had no idea that the global stage would alter so drastically.

2012: A Year That Will Go Down in Infamy, If We Live That Long

So, what, then does 2012 hold for us all? Obviously, we are already 12 years into the future and we still haven't got jet packs and monkey butlers, but I am willing to forgive the world of science for these hideous oversights if they come up with some way of skipping the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. Because, frankly, if I'm not invited to light the flame, I'm not interested.
