The First Embedded YouTube Video

The First Embedded YouTube Video

YouTube videos have been embedded in blogs since the dawn of time.  Actually, that's not true.  YouTube didn't exist until 2005.

Out of curiosity, I wanted to find out when I embedded a YouTube video on this blog for the first time.  It was February 4, 2006 when I shared Brokeback to the Future.

Less than a year later, YouTube was purchased by Google for $1.65 billion.  Coincidence? I think not.
