    YouTube Insights July 2013

    Sorry, John Stewart, but YouTube tops more viewers than Comedy Central in the most sought after age group of 18-34 year olds.

    The first of what Google promises to be a quarterly event, YouTube Insights brings you the latest statistics, trends, and insights on online video from across YouTube and Google. Download the entire report for free (and without giving up your email address) here. A very interesting read indeed.

    By now, everybody has seen this music video by Robin Thicke Blurred Lines, featuring Pharrell Williams and T.I. Oh, yeah, also featuring models Emily Ratajkowski (@realemrata), Elle Evans (@elloelee_), and Jessi M’Bengue (@Jessimbengue) walking around naked. If you’re offended by nudity then suggest the earlier version or this Jimmy Fallon rendition.

    Despite being banned from YouTube for being too risqué (who knew YouTube was own by Disney) the video still went viral and the song skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. And Robin Thicke pinch hit for Daft Punk on the Stephen Colbert Report, effectively touted as the “song of the summer”.

    Robin Thicke recently told Howard Stern on The Howard Stern Show that the song was inspired by his wife Paula Patton.

    The song “Blurred Lines” has the line, “She’s a good girl, but she wants to be a bad girl,” it’s very much about my wife. My wife is Mrs. Good Girl. Gradually, over our marriage, I’ve turned her into a bad girl.

    I’ve been saying this for years.

    A great little video about the importance of learning how to code from code.org, featuring a host of heavy hitters such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Drew Houston, and will.i.am.

    Hey kids, there is a shortage of talented programmers in the world, learn to code. By the time you reach puberty, you pretty much know you’re not going to be the next Meryl Streep or Michael Jordan but you can still be a programmer. Learn to code.
