A comparison which tells us what exactly? Does checking out a Youtube
clip compare to attending lectures at UCB? The throw-way remark strikes
me as typical of the category errors that increasingly beset
commentators as they try to make fast sense of the latest fad before the
next fad rolls in.
And how do we know that most Youtube viewers haven't watched the first
15 secs, realised that the lecture isn't as interesting as the baby
biting his brother, and moved on?
