I've been thinking about Google Video [1] the last couple of days, and 
I've come to the conclusion that services _such_as_ Google video that 
take the hassle out of hosting extremely large files have the power to 
change the world.

The costs of hosting are a significant barrier to entry at the moment, 
and I think that having services which remove these barriers will enable 
a new form of media that doesn't exist yet.

Do others agree? Do you see ways in which people like schools and so 
forth can use this kind of technology?
