A journalist rang me last night with questions about YouTube – Marika suggested he call me, he said, which was cool (thanks Marika!), because unlike last summer, by now I do know stuff about YouTube, more than enough for the two brief quotes needed for the article. And the great thing about journalists calling you is they fill you in on bits you didn’t know – I hadn’t thought to search YouTube for the Norwegian stars, for instance, and this article nicely presents some who’ve got way more fame than they’d expected. Fun 🙂

    Um. Well. Sure, if they ring rather than sending long email interviews that take hours, and if they’re to the point and don’t take up lots of time… Heh.
