    “amazed” “but still not so sure about it”

    Two questions… why? And why not?

    becoz, i am just not sure for a university to promote itself on youTube.. have never seen MIT, Stanford.. or ETH advertising on youTube .. or for that matter on any other Web 2.0 sites .. mebbe its a new trend which UCD is gonna start .. so have nothing against it.. just not sure .. i thought the university shud be promoted by its students, its alumni and its achievements and its research and development and its reach to promote better education.. (which all UCD does and is quite good in it and getting better) soo… why youTube???

    anyhow.. in short.. i was probably just not excepting to see UCD ad (or any other university ad) on youTube.. probably it was more of reaction .. but surely.. its the best way to reach the generation ..

    don’t think it was intentional as Youtube has an irish site now (http://ie.youtube.com) and its probably showing ireland-related ads picked via google’s adwords. no big deal.
