How does YouTube video view count work?

I consider myself late to the YouTube game and all its quirks. I also consider myself a self-made genius for figuring out how to post HD videos and that is saying a lot. I currently maintain two different channels, one for personal and home videos and the other is for everyday use, freelance videos or just randomness.

On the Prowl at Geekend

Want to make friends at Geekend? This is one way of doing it. Here is my best version of the play-by-play of an interesting evening with fellow geeks in the wings. Please note: I am not a writer or even a storyteller.

Geekend Day 2:  It started off with me unfortunately missing every single daytime session. I was desperately trying to close up my Friday work day so I could enjoy the evening. I was excited to attend the evening keynote with Oscar Gerardo and meet up with some friends. A quick check-in with foursquare and I was ready to enjoy the evening. Read more »
