YouTube history

Watching Obama's acceptance speech - and especially the closeup of Jesse Jackson's tears - I thought it would be cool to have a recording. Don't have the liveTV TIVO on the Verizon FIOS that we used to have on Dish, but I suddenly remembered we are in the 21st century. The internet will record everything, forever. Then I thought, I bet someone has posted good youtube moments of the history we've seen growing up. Sure enough, I found lots, especially this compilation that covers all the Boomer history!
