My favorite talk from General Conference was Elder Holland’s Easter message “None Were With Him,” now edited for length and supplemented with additional video on YouTube.

The latest video on the Mormon Messages channel on YouTube is entitled “Create,” by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf. He says, “The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul…. The more you trust and rely on the Spirit, the greater your capacity to create.”

As an aside, I like the Mormon Messages idea. But I hate the fact that a YouTube implementation carries along with it the baggage of “related videos” and “promoted videos” over which viewers and video creators have no control. (That’s why I linked to the Mormon Messages profile page above, rather than to the main YouTube page that will host this specific clip permanently. Otherwise you get a bunch of random, sometimes antagonistic garbage juxtaposed with the inspiring message you intended to highlight.)

I wish YouTube would allow video creators at least a little control over the types of “related” and “promoted” videos that appear, in order to keep messages that are actually unrelated or even antithetical from diluting the message.

Obama announced he will be holding weekly YouTube fireside chats, what his people are saying is “just the beginning of the digital, transparent presidency.” Related: Obama’s staff photographer’s behind the scenes photos of election night, which has just over 2 million views in 10 days.
