YouTube is Yoda, You Are Luke

Writing on the Atlantic, Alexis Madrigal walks us through his playful reflections on YouTube, specifically it’s value as a How-To guide for just about anything.

After his hot water heater stopped working, Madrigal’s savior came in the form of a YouTuber.  MrOzcar82, who posted a video teaching us how to reignite a heater’s pilot light, instructs Madrigal (and everyone else) in a straightforward, unedited, amateur post.  Madrigal calls this video and the many others like it a “mundane wonder” of the internet, where people share there knowledge just to be helpful.
