Of course, the cost of living in Australia is roughly 50% higher than in the US, and those that don’t complete high school are likely PHD caliber–they just realized they could make a lot of money versus going to college.

Will Susan Wojcicki Turn YouTube Into a Blockbuster Hit, or Just Blockbuster?

youtubeIt seems the management at Google are trying to kill two birds with one stone.

First, make sure that long time Google employee Susan Wojcicki stays motivated, and most importantly, stays with Google.

Second, find someone that can take YouTube to the next level.

As re/code reports, Wojcicki is set to be named as the next head of the world’s largest video site:

Wojcicki had been interested in running her own thing, sources said, and she had also been a recruitment target for a venture capital or perhaps a CEO role…It’s unclear what Wojcicki’s move will mean for YouTube itself. Over the past few years the video site has generated grumbling from some programmers, who have found it hard to make significant money there, and from some advertisers, who would like it behave more like a TV network.

Esurance Wins the Super Bowl

Let’s be honest, the reason why brands spend so much time and effort on their Super Bowl ads, is because they hope they will “go viral.” They’re even willing to spend $4M just to have it aired.

That’s why the Esurance ad is marketing brilliance.

Instead of spending $4M and hoping your ad will go viral, save the cash, and get everyone tweeting like crazy!
