YouTube has brought us videos of cats and dogs, re-runs of classic TV shows and established the A-list stars of our generation. It has brought world events into our living rooms and onto our phones at the touch of a button. It will be exciting to see how the platform evolves over the next 10 years; I have no doubt that it will continue to change the way we watch, learn and interact with the world around us. Happy Birthday, YouTube.

Forget 'The Sun', It's Russell Brand Wot Won It!

In my view, no matter how much The Sun et al hate Russell Brand, his interview will have an affect on the way young people vote. How can it not? It might even persuade people to vote who weren't going to under any circumstances - and Brand came close to giving Ed the thumbs up. So, if Labour do end up in power next time, it'll be Russell Brand and social media wot won it - not The Sun.

There has been a collective failure to attract a younger audience to politics and current affairs. This is in very large part the fault of the parties themselves. Trying to blame the media would be foolish and wrong. They do, however, have a contribution to make.

I used to have allocated family-laptop time, and when I got a laptop of my own, it didn't have internet. Now, people can access and create a wealth of information at just the click of a button. And while this is convenient, entertaining and empowering - and, don't get me wrong, I embrace it just as much as everyone else, I'm only 21 after all - I miss the times when I'd mess around on Paint and Movie Maker for fun before going downstairs to watch the Simpsons, then reading a book before going to bed.
