Chaos in the Circle of Youtube, by Tim Stapenhorst

I wanted to explore the simple mess that a media outlet of YouTube is by typing in the word "chaos" and see what was turned out.

On the first page alone, there was a news clip about chaos in Iran, there were videos for songs called "Chaos," and a home made 3D animation set to music.

Together, these things have little in common apart from their names. However, with a forum like YouTube, the chaos is the point.

Because these are so vastly different, yet end up on the same page, we see a purpose in the format of YouTube: providing services that appeal to the highest number of people, even if it does come across looking like a mess.
