It's usually assumed that youtube is just for kittens, babies, and music videos. However, youtube is also the highest-traffic site on the internet and it turns out it's actually a darn good place to teach people about physics! We'll start with the story and analysis of how my video series Minutephysics grew from a fun project to a youtube channel with 120,000 subscribers and 9 million views in just a few months, then discuss how media & technology (especially videos) can facilitate good (and bad) communication, and finally talk about how you can harness the power of the internet in your own physics outreach. And of course we'll watch a few cool videos along the way. As a primer, feel free to check out www.youtube.com/minutephysics
