This video's title tells you how many views it has by Tom Scott

Nice bit of wizardry here from Tom Scott, he's using YouTube's APIs to periodically update the title to reflect the number of views it has.

As Web 2.0 surfaced, I was just starting out in web development. Public APIs were just starting to get going and progressive enhancements were all the rage. It's sad that a lot of services, or the original incarnation, no longer exists. And I find the current state of the web pretty annoying as progressively enhancing something would probably reduce the weight of a lot of websites down to a fraction of what they currently are.
