Susan Boyle, the Scottish woman that has blown the world away on Britain’s Got Talent, is Digital Dirt that is worth spreading. I have watched the clip on YouTube a few times and every time I am delighted. I get an instant smile (and sometimes a little tear in the corner of my eye).
The imbed code has been disabled on all of the YouTube postings of her BGT performance, but you can view it on this link.
She is the best type of Digital Dirt (in my opinion). A spirit lifting, dream inspiring, self-humbling, and amazing woman. The question is: is she the biggest YouTube sensation ever? YouTube views suggest that she is bigger than President Obama and Bush (when he is getting shoes thrown at him from the Iraqi media).
So often the web is used to spread Dirt that is simply not worth spreading. And YouTube, the now 7th largest search engine in-and-of-itself, has a profound impact on our digital footprint. I am just so glad that this time; this one time, it is being used to share a voice and a story that truly is amazing. I wish Susan the best of luck.
