YouTube Canada

So CBC reports that YouTube Canada launched today. The odd thing is that I think there's been an active .ca version of the popular user-posted vid site going for at least a month. The .ca version culls from the larger site's storehouse, highlighting Canadian content. Canada, according to the CBC story, is one of 15 international sites for the YouTube powerhouse.

What I find impressive, however, is that the vlog item announcing the launch had "a mere 39 views at announcement time", according to CBC, yet I've just been and the video has 10,508 views. Wow. That's viral marketing. And here I'm just helping. Doh!

Here, too, is that rather limp Welcome to Canada video...
