Snooty British Kids Don’t Care That Tim Berners-Lee Invented the World Wide Web

Toughest audience on the block.

We are, however, quite amused at this promotional video, in which a sassy panel of children considers the Internet’s biggest names for open advisory positions. Most do not meet their exacting standards.

YouTube cofounder Chad Hurley doesn’t impress them once they know he doesn’t actually make the videos; Tim Berners-Lee’s credentials are underwhelming. They get excited about Bebo, but only because it sounds like Bieber. Don’t worry, kids–you’re not missing much on that last one.

Perhaps we should put these children in charge of Silicon Alley recruiting. At least they’re not trying to bribe anyone with a Segway.
