Ring in the New Year!

By The YouTube Team

With 2008 upon us, it's a great time to participate in this New Year's program, which invites you to make a video answering one of four questions, including revealing what your personal theme will be for 2008. (And while you're there, you can watch a full-length concert from Simple Plan, Talib Kweli and YouTube OntheRise Rap winner Conceit, live from the Highline Ballroom in NYC.)

Many of you -– plus artists like Matchbox Twenty, Lupe Fiasco, Paramore and others -– heeded the call, and your videos now populate our YouTube/Google Maps Mashup. What's more, some of the best submissions will be showcased tonight on the Samsung Jumbotron in Manhattan's Times Square.

For those of you who haven't submitted: you're in luck. Submissions don't end just because 2007 does. You have until January 18 to upload your video and see it on a map with your fellow YouTubers.

So get rolling and have a happy and safe 2008.
