YouTube and its vloggers are the future of entertainment as we know it; but if it's to stay as popular and widespread as it is today then it needs to have its content creators conform to the same kinds of regulations television and other forms of media do.

The Amateurish Toy Unboxers of YouTube

Michael Spicer | Posted 29.06.2015 | UK Comedy
Michael Spicer

As we speak, this movement is making a big cultural leap. Unboxers are not only unboxing the toys but also playing with them. This of course adds extra pathos to the clips because there's nothing quite as upsetting as watching an adult hand moving a small anthropomorphic puppy around and doing the voices.

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

Paul Blanchard | Posted 06.05.2015 | UK Politics

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.
