YouTube and ease of use

In an article, "Missing the point about YouTube", John Dvorak says:
Nobody -- and I mean nobody -- made it easy until YouTube ... It's brain dead simple.

The first thing you notice about YouTube is the lack of barriers to entry. You can sign up quickly and upload anything in any format right away.

The YouTube formula for success is simply ease-of-use and convenience.
