Did I ever mention I really hate YouTube? I love watching some of the videos on it, but unlike a lot of Internet goers, I don’t spend literally hours. I spend a few minutes. I don’t look around YouTube, I don’t follow videos. Until Google recently made it mandatory to be logged into YouTube when logged into your regular Google account, I was adamant about staying logged out so YouTube could not track the videos I liked and suggest more. I hate YouTube as a place to go. For me, it’s just a thing to use.
For me, like other things on the Internet, YouTube is needs to function as a dumb pipe of videos. Overlaying that with structure, like channels, and followers, and I don’t even know what else because it’s insane, well, scares me.
I doubt paid channels will have much support initially if all there is Revision 3 style shows. It really depends on the content. It’ll be tough.
Oh. Did I mention I hate YouTube. That makes me a horrible person, right?
