Well, 90/10 is a degeneration of the Pareto principle which puts it at 80/20. But then, Youtube kinda blows that all away in that it used to take two or three people just to show your Super 8 movies to your family and now your dumb-ass Periscopes are visible to the entire world with the press of a button.

The problem, as I see it, is that droning in front of the computer with a bunch of stolen clips for days at a time will be monetized per play by Youtube whereas writing a blog will not. So you've got people who will drone in front of stolen content for money because Google's business model is fucking terrible.

I have six channels. One of them is elizabeth. One of them is effectively CNN. And one of them is literally a webcam.

I find that the only really worthwhile parts of YouTube are (some of) the music videos and the live performances.

Also Drugslab.

Used to be a fan of Drugslab. But they are misinformed.

I like the fact that they are financed by the government and are doing harm reduction but part of the information they provide are not well researched and could even make more harm than good.
