As proof that the Internet video revolution is truly underway, Google paid $1.65 billion for YouTube, a company not 20 months old. The aftershock of that mash-up will, all by itself, contribute to Internet video's growth. In addition, eMarketer projects video ad spending will soar 82.2% this year and 89.0% in 2007.
