YouTube Time Limit Increased to 15 Minutes

Print comment Post Comments
Google sent media pundits scrambling to their bookshelves, Wikipedia, and to verify exact wording when it boosted YouTube's maximum time limit for uploaded videos to 15 minutes. Known for offering celebrity status to everyday folk, YouTube was already attributed to a well-known and oft-repeated quotation from artist Andy Warhol, but when the site chose that specific time span, bloggers had no choice but to state the obvious.

For the upcoming publication of MetaBartlett's -- a compendium of quotes about quotes -- allow me to submit the following for the 2011 edition:

Andy Warhol said in 1968 that "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." Well, you can now get "15 minutes of fame" on YouTube.
-- Greg Jarboe,

Artist Andy Warhol declared in 1968, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." And now YouTube's working to make that a little more possible.
-- Cat Rambo, Daniweb

The video sharing website has taken Andy Warhol's '15 minutes of fame' adage and increased its upload limit from 10 minutes to 15.
-- Anonymous, Design Taxi

When Andy Warhol postulated that in the future we would all be famous for 15 minutes, he must have foreseen the rise of YouTube.
-- Stewart Meagher, Thinq

YouTube has taken Andy Warhol's 15 minutes of fame quite literally by extending video upload length to - you guessed it - 15 minutes.
-- Marie Boran, Gadget Republic

All of those people who glibly use YouTube to 'prove' Andy Warhol's famous assertion that "In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes" have been wrong, wrong, WRONG. YouTube videos only last ten minutes – everyone knows that. Well, they did.
-- Toby Knight, Electric Pig

Um die neue Clip-Dauer gebührend zu würdigen, veranstaltet Youtube in Anlehnung an Andy Warhol die Aktion "15 Minutes of Fame" ("15 Minuten Ruhm").
-- Unattributed, Technik

Google will attempt to corner the 2012 MetaBartlett's edition next year when the company measures birth rate intervals against the number of foolish and easily susceptible people currently alive.
