This boy engages with history, preaches the gospel, and reminds us that we are all products of our surroundings. Who are you? And what did you preach when you were young?
Videos of children on youtube–especially ridiculous ones like this one–make me wonder about the permanence of this format, and its frightening future indexability.
- If the child–10 years from now–were to search based on his voice (a capability in the works for media searching), would he receive this result?
- At what age will this child ‘discover’ this video of himself? When will/might he prefer it taken down?
- If this child becomes President some day, what role might this video play?
