A Paradigm Shift: YouTube's First Live Streaming Cam Is Corgis, Not Cats

Google's behemoth video sharing site has launched its first 24-7 live streaming video feed -- The Pet Collective's corgi puppy cam. It's a stunning move, flouting the site's reputation as a bastion of cat videos and reigniting the great corgi debate of April, 2012. This marks not only a bold new era for live streaming video (sorry, Ustream) but the end (could it be?) of the LOLcat hegemony that has ruled the Internet for as long as we can remember. Ponder that while you watch these two-week old puppies nap.
