In today’s world, we often associate video technology with video-sharing websites, chat, collaboration, webcasts and the like. But let’s take a trip back to 1988, shall we?
Before popular video-sharing sites like YouTube were around, there was a show called “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. The concept was for people to submit their funniest moments caught on video. The top 3 winners, voted by the audience, would then win a prize. The concept was a hit, and soon millions of people across the country were using video to capture priceless (and hilarious) moments in their lives to share with the rest of the world.
I remember this show not only bringing my family and I together, as we shared laughs and memories, but many other families doing the same. Being able to relate and share laughs with millions of people across the nation – this is the true power of video.
