Youtube has a new superstar. It’s a 79-year old British widower whose moniker is geriatric1927. He began uploading videos about life onto Youtube only last week. So far, his first video has been viewed over 600,000 times!
He seems to be gentle man who is using the internet to build community. In the video below, geriatric1927 states that he has received over 4,700 emails from the Youtube community and that Youtube has changed his life.
One of the comments on about video said, “You’re like the Grandfather I wish I had.” It reminds me how disconnected the younger generation is from the lives, stories and wisdom of previous generations. Considering all the junk you normally find on Youtube, I’m glad geriatric1927 is finding a voice.
