The New York Times is reporting this morning that the identity of Funtwo has finally been revealed. If you don’t know who Funtwo is, then you obviously haven’t been doing your homework at YouTube. Here’s a link to the video that made him an international man of mystery and a source of amazement to all who have seen his performance. (The link to the Times article requires a one-time, free registration.)
Funtwo’s video has been viewed 7,498,824 times at the time I am writing this, and it has been “favorited” 45,705 times. It was the first YouTube video I chose to add as a favorite. His fame is yet another illustration of how connecting up the whole world and giving everyone the opportunity to create content has changed our society in remarkable ways. It remains to be seen I suppose whether this change is for good or ill, but in eleven short years the world wide web has made all the world a stage that anyone with a connection can see and even perform on if they choose.
