YouTube? Isn't that just a site for videos showing dogs playing the piano or people performing crazy stunts?

Savvy companies are leveraging YouTube channels and new social collaboration features--as well as customers' rising expectations for video--to offer how-to's, product demos, interviews, webinars, and the like.
