Keeping in Touch Via the YouTube Blog and Forum
Want to keep up with what's going on behind the scenes at YouTube? Want to get to know some of the people who make the site work? Then check out the YouTube blog, shown in Figure 12.24. The YouTube Blog is a collection of text and video posts by members of the YouTube team. It's a great way to put faces to the services offered by the YouTube site.

You access the YouTube Blog at www.youtube.com/blog, or by clicking the Blog link at the bottom of any YouTube page.
Also interesting are the Unofficial YouTube Forums (www.youtubeforums.com), shown in Figure 12.25. At the name implies, this is an unofficial site where people gather to discuss all things YouTube. It's a great place to hang out with fellow YouTubers, ask questions of more experienced users, share links to cool videos you've seen, promote your own videos, and just generally chat about what you do or don't like about YouTube.
