I know I am late to sign up for YouTube, but I did not see the point in doing so until our BA channel BScE.TV was launched recently. As I want to be kept up-to-date about new additions, I thought now was the time to go the extra mile and sign up for an account.

The first thing when signing up for a YouTube account is to choose your account type. I can pretty much understand “Standard”, “Director”, “Musician”, and “Comedian”, but why is there a category for “Guru”? Is it the equivalent to “Spiritual Leader”?

In the end I did not have to ponder existential questions about the type of category I belong to because I realized before finalizing the account creation that I could also log on with my Google account. Lucky me. One password less to remember.
