1 Million views in 2

Have you ever met Fred? He is a YouTube sensation, his latest video has got over 1 million views in 2 days = Wow.

His channel,, has:
Subscribers: 429,688
Channel Views: 10,529,653

There is a commercial investor behind the man (boy - Lucas Cruikshank - 14!), a IM wireless device called Zipit. Guessing they are pretty chuffed with the total of 77 million viewers of all of the Fred videos!

More info:
"Lucas has also scored a five-figure sponsorship deal with the makers of a wireless messaging device called Zipit - so he's augmenting his virtual fame with some real cash."

The Zipit device doesn't get featured in the last 2 video's and neither does Fred's Zipit web link - So maybe it has gone a bit pear shaped?

Personal favourite:

meme: Inspirational communicators

Ged has tagged me on the latest meme to find inspirational communicators. So far names include; Steve Jobs, Muhammed Ali , Big Winston, Banksy and Wadds Grandad!

I thought I would take the literal route and go for the big 3; Telephone, Internet and Email.

Alexander Graham Bell for beating Elisha Gray to the patent office and starting the ball rolling for long distance (not initially mind) voice communications.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee the man behind the WWW, might not have been the same if it wasn't royalty-free!

'The Email' it actually pre-dates the Internet by 25 years! Now a staple of most of our lives, I have at least 4 email addresses!

On a personal note I would got with two teachers; Andy Corcoran, my inspirational advertising professor from Uni and Mr D'Angelo - I have never seen someone with such a passion for Maths!

I am going to tag Robin, Paul and a very quiet Daljit
