John Seabrook on YouTube

John Seabrook talks about YouTube and the other new professionally produced channels that it plans to roll out over the next six months. It is part of a larger strategy, designed by YouTube’s Robert Kyncl and Salar Kamangar, to increase the amount of time people spend on the site. His article “Streaming Dreams: YouTube Turns Pro” appeared in the January 16 issue of The New Yorker.
