You will all be delighted to know that youtube appears to be up and running on BYU campus again. Perhaps in part thanks to this.

UPDATE:  It’s blocked again.

    Ah, BYU. Way to take a step toward joining the rest of the world, at least in one simple way.

    Har! Great title.

    Scott, that can’t be it. Nothing at BYU happens that fast.

    Frank, good point. The block/unblock cycle on YouTube at BYU is probably a belated response to the Columbine shootings…

    “The block/unblock cycle on YouTube at BYU is probably a belated response to the Columbine shootings…”

    That sounds about right.

    If you use “airproxy,” youtube is easily accessed on campus.

    dude, just get an iphone and watch youtube on your phone. BYU cannot block youtube on the iPhone.

    This happens all the time at BYU. All the blocks will be off for a day.

    I imagine some guy accidentally hitting a switch somewhere from ON to OFF, then some righteous student calling to report the error, then a scramble to flip the switch back on before anyone’s videos have time to finish loading.
