15 minutes of fame

Culture
IT'S FRIDAY DECEMBER 10TH, I'M NATALI MORRIS COMING TO YOU FROM SAN FRANCISCO THIS WEEK AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] VERY POPULAR THIS YEAR. TISK, TISK. GOOGLE RELEASED ITS 2010 ZEITGIEST WITH THE FATEST GROWING AND MOST POPULAR TERMS OF THE YEAR. NO SURPRISE THAT JUSTIN BIEBER AND KATY PERRY ARE ON THAT LIST. [*] YOU ARE NO LONGER LIMITED TO 15 MINUTES OF FAME. AT LEAST NOT ON YOUTUBE. THE VIDEO SHARING SITE HAS STARTED TO ALLOW UPLOADS THAT ARE LONGER THAN 15 MINUTES, WHICH USED TO BE THE MAX. NOT EVERYONE CAN DO THIS YET. ONLY A SELECT SET OF USERS WITH GOOD YOUTUBE STANDING. [*] YAHOO HAS REVAMPED ITS LOCAL PAGES. THESE ARE ITS YELLOW PAGES-TYPE LISTINGS. THE NEW PAGES INCLUDE LOCAL NEWS ARTICLES PERTAINING TO A GIVEN LOCATION, PLUS DEALS AND EVENTS. THE NEW PAGES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IN 30 MARKETS TO START. [*] NOT NECESSARILY TRUE. A NEW PEW RESEARCH STUDY SHOWS THAT 8 PERCENT OF ONLINE AMERICANS ARE ON TWITTER. PEOPLE AGED 18 TO 29 ARE MORE TO BE USERS. IT IS ALSO INTERESTING WHAT IS BEING POSTED. 72 PERCENT OF USERS POST ABOUT THEIR PERSONAL LIVES, 62 PERCENT POST ABOUT THEIR JOB, 55 PERCENT SHARE LINKS TO NEWS STORIES, AND 53 PERCENT LIKE TO RETWEET. [*] THE KING OF ALL MEDIA, HOWARD STERN, ANNOUNCED ON THURSDAY THAT HE WILL RE-SIGN WITH SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO FOR ANOTHER 5 YEARS. NOT ONLY THAT, HE WILL NOW BE INCLUDED IN SIRIUS' MOBILE APPS WHERE HE HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ABSENT. STERN'S FIRST CONTRACT EXPIRED THIS MONTH AND HE HAD HINTED ABOUT GOING TO A NEW MEDIUM BUT IN THE END, HE WILL NOT. HE WILL STAY PUT ON SATELLITE RADIO. [*] GETTING LOADED. I WILL SEE YOU BACK IN NEW YORK ON MONDAY. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND. I'M NATALI MORRIS FOR CNET.COM AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
