Illinois Utube: Illinois' Got Talent
YouTube and Illinois: a blending of Tradition and New Media
With the development of YouTube, Illinois students, friends and alums have discovered a new form of self-expression. And since two of its creators, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim, actually studied computer science here, it's only natural that Illinois be hailed and celebrated in this way. We know Illinois has spirit...and now we can show off their talent too.
We've taken the time to highlight some of the accumulating videos from Illinois fans.
