This is the most consequential technology in America

It's the most popular social app and music service, the healthiest economy on the internet and AI training fuel

(Spoiler alert: It's YouTube.)

You think you know YouTube. It's where billions of people learn how to change a tire, follow a favorite yoga workout or catch footage of Monday's solar eclipse.

But maybe you don't know that YouTube is also the most popular way to hear music and one of the country's largest cable TV providers. YouTube is the healthiest economy on the internet. And it has been rocket fuel for artificial intelligence.

I'm digging into YouTube's identity because it's essential to understand the influence of technologies in our lives. As popular as YouTube is, its power over the internet and us is somehow still underrated.
