It appeared, for a few minutes, that YOUTUBE would be our fastest closing stock in PPX history;…

That there is a link to the MGM story that’s got us all buzzing. MGM’s not on the payout list, so we’re not closing for it. We’re going to keep it open b/c the conditions of the payout statement have not been met, and we’re not at payout deadline (more deals could take place before then).

Taderboi pointed out in a genius six degrees of separation-esque email that HBO and YouTube have a partnership, and HBO is owned by Paramount. For clarity’s sake– and b/c corporate America is too incestuous for us to take anything but a puritanical approach– we’re going to focus only on direct partnerships for this prop.

So, keep watching youtube (especially all of the awesome videos), and keep on trading on PPX.
