According to Slate and a YouTube spokesperson, twenty hours of footage are uploaded to YouTube every minute. That's insane—by that statistic, in 2009, users will upload approximately 10,000,000 hours, or 1,000 years of footage to YouTube.
Think of the server space that's required to store 1,000 years of video! No wonder Google's losing half a billion dollars a year on YouTube.
